CATDC coach or consultant providing personalized guidance to a teacher, setting goals for professional growth in a 1-1 session.


Burnout is one of the biggest liabilities facing schools. Levels keep increasing for educators and common methods used to address it struggle to yield lasting positive impact. Failure to address burnout will result in increased escalations, increased rates of disengaged employees, and increased turnover. Addressing burnout is also critical to DEI work as burnout has disproportionate effects on educators. In this free Skill Up! session we will explore types of burnout, causes, and sustainable solutions so your school can reimagine its approach. 

In this Skill Up! participants will: 

  • Explore different types of burnout
  • Understand causes and contributors to burnout 
  • Gain knowledge on how to address burnout in a sustainable way 
  • Learn from colleagues/share insights 


This is a free program for CATDC Member Schools only, and is ideal for K-12 administrators. We invite CATDC Member Schools to send up to 3 people to our free member-only workshops. Spots fill quickly and are available on a first-come, first-served basis
