Who’s got the power? The power of the internet and phone technology (well, not only phone technology) but technology in all of its forms, has become so pervasive, that it seems like we have no control.
With everything else that teachers need to be aware of and do in the classroom setting, the impact of our verbal and non-verbal behaviours can be over-looked.

I find this topic interesting but I've yet to read anything about teacher stress related to the tasks 'admin' expects of them. I find my students are fine- I work on positive relationships and with a positive classroom climate all is managed, or better yet, I have very little re discipline that needs managing! I assess, plan, prepare, deliver, reassess, etc- all fine. What I find adds to my stress levels/ workload are the 100s of jobs expected of me that have very little to do with my day to day teaching. Teachers are now expected to do everything on line and when technology doesn't work- more stress. For a specialist to do something, a teacher has to do some work initially, despite not having the specialist skills, ; accounting tasks- budgets, budget codes; finding the right admin person to change the toner cartridge in the photocopier- all take away from teachers' preparation time! I find my colleagues and I complain about 'the little jobs' (according to leadership) that all add up. It is also annoying to see some staff given many release periods to complete their jobs- leadership and coordination, yet classroom teachers are given tasks with very little or no time to complete these tasks- very unfair, inequitable time allocation adds to workload/ stress and negative mindset does little for teacher well- being!☹️
