Everyone at Saint Mary’s Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs has long been amazed by the depth of knowledge and expertise in teaching and learning that Sarah Haugen and Tracy Lysne, Program Directors in our M.Ed. in Teaching and Learning Program, bring to our academic community. We are so proud to have them enter into the wider conversation about how teacher burnout is creating ripple effects across Minnesota and the nation. We also appreciate the efforts of the Star Tribune’s New Voices section to bring conversations around the needs of our educators into the public discourse on education.
Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is deeply invested in the health and well-being of teachers at all levels. Their words and actions help our learners appreciate the value of their own uniqueness as well as the unique character of the people and world around them. We are proud to support them in all they do!
We encourage everyone within the Saint Mary’s community to read and respond to Sarah Haugen and Tracy Lysne’s insightful article below:
