Welcome to Teachers in Transition


Help for the Burnt-out Teacher Who is Ready to Leapfrog Out of the Classroom and Into the Career of Their Dreams

Are you a frustrated, fatigued teacher? Have you hit the wall of burnout? Not sure?

Then download this checklist of 7 signs of teacher burnout and decide for yourself.

If you answer even one of the questions with a "yes," you may be experiencing teacher burnout.

And if you are, there are two solutions.

One is to get a handle on your stress and learn ASAP how to relieve it and manage it before you get sick.

The other is to consider making a career change.

And these two solutions are not mutually exclusive.

You may need to do both:  learn how to manage your stress AND start looking for a new line of work.


 First, check yourself for teacher burnout.


Download the free checklist from the sidebar, or click here: "7 Signs of Teacher Burnout."

You’re not alone! At Teachers in Transition, we help teachers learn how to manage their stress better.

AND we assist them in determining if the time has come to make a career change.

Teachers are leaving the classroom every year at an increasing rate for a reason.

The work conditions have become unsustainable.

And many of them want--they need--to make more money.

So, if you aren't sure whether what you are feeling is burnout, submit your name in the form to the right, and download the free checklist.

You may also submit your name on the other form on the right to download a free eBook on stress management.
