Teaching remains one of the most challenging professions, with teachers expected at different times of the day, to be an inspirational performer, a counsellor, an administrator, a nurturer of young adults among the many roles.

Stephen Hill asked University of NSW Scientia PhD student Andrew Kingsford-Smith the best ways of improving teacher well-being to prevent teachers leaving the profession.
