Disruptive Students Affect Teachers’ Well Being

Teacher Insights

Disruptive behaviour of some students can impact the emotional well-being of primary school teachers than others, according to Janneke de Ruiter, Education Scientist at University of Amsterdam . Teachers can experience a wide range of emotions when interacting with these students-suppressed anger when a student refused to listen, to feelings of attachment and affection during a good conversation with a student. Such emotions have long-term consequences for the teacher’s well-being and for student’s school engagement. Teachers seem to be more emotionally affected by students with relatively high levels of disruptive behaviour and by boys. Moreover, teachers experience strong negative emotions when students’ behaviour threatens interpersonal relationships, for instance when students bully other students or are rude to the teacher. The study points to the necessity to support primary school teachers in their emotional interactions with specific individual students.
