Back-to-School Anxiety and Coping Strategies for Students, Family Members, and School Staff

As students, school staff, and families approach back-to-school time, nervousness mixes with anticipation and excitement with anxiety. Students wonder about their new teachers. Educators plan and prepare for beginning-of-the-year lessons. Leaders communicate with stakeholders, transportation companies, and last-minute hires. Families begin to prepare their children and themselves for the impending return-to-school schedules. All are faced with the stress of trying to balance their school/work lives with their home lives.

Join Dr. Wendy Amato, K12 Coalition’s Chief Academic Officer, Scilla Andreen, CEO of iMPACTFUL and Film Producer of the documentary Angst, and Keely Keller, Teaching Channel’s Director of Professional Programs, for an authentic conversation about back-to-school anxiety. With the goal of providing information, resources, and strategies for students, educators, and family members, they discuss reasons for back-to-school anxiety, observable indicators, and coping methods. This session provides resources, strategies, and tools, as well as inspiration, solutions, and hope for those experiencing or navigating back-to-school anxiety.
