The researchEd Guide to Explicit and Direct Instruction. Edited by Adam Boxer and Tom Bennett.

It is getting increasingly more stressful to be a teacher. In the past, I have had to take time off work due to work-related stress. With these articles, I hope to help other teachers around the world look after their physical and mental health.

You will find articles on stress, mental health, physical fitness. Everything to keep you in top condition, inside and out, so you can continue to lead a happy, healthy life both in and out of the classroom.

There will also be articles on how you can manage your own finances, sadly, a topic I know many teachers struggle with due mainly to a salary that doesn’t reflect how hard we work.
