Resilience can be defined as the process of accommodating well after experiencing tragedy or stress in your life (Southwick, 2014). This means being able to cope with day to day experiences whether they be good or bad, and finding the positive through learning from your mistakes. In order for you to strive at being resilient, you must make sure you have strategies in place such as building strong relationships with other co-workers, having people you can trust to turn to, to help cope with stress, the pressures of performing your job and to help you mentally stay strong (Lowinger, 2015). Some challenges faced in today’s world in relation to pre-service teaching are work-life balance, lack of experience and dealing with culture gaps within students in the classroom. A resilient teacher is one who can overcome these challenges, which will thus be discussed further in the essay. (Beltman, 2018). Resilience is important in teachers because they need to be able to have a positive impact on students learning and their achievement. Committed teachers are more resilient and are more likely to broaden their student’s education and learning (BRiTE, 2019). Resilience is not something you are born with, rather something you learn to achieve over time, through daily life experiences. The term burn-out is used when people are having a negative attitude at work, dread going to work, have a low energy and are unsuccessful (Nuri & Tezer, 2018). Learning to be organized, learning from mentors, taking care of your health and wellbeing and having fun are some ways you can avoid teacher burnout (Drake & Hebert, 2002). According to the BRiTE website, it focuses on five main areas in building teacher resilience, these are building resilience, relationships, wellbeing, taking initiative and emotions. The main purpose of the website is to help pre-service teachers become aware of skills they can use in order to maintain this resilience (BRiTE, 2019).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
