Content warning: This post discusses death and school violence.

As teachers, we’re all too familiar with the concept of teacher burnout. The data shows just how pervasive it is, with K-12 teachers maintaining the highest burnout rates of all industries in the United States. Something not often talked about as a contributing factor to burnout is compassion fatigue. Many teachers are prone to compassion fatigue and probably experience signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue without even being aware. So what exactly is compassion fatigue and why does it matter to us as educators?

What is compassion fatigue?

Carla Joinson first described compassion fatigue in 1992 in the field of nursing. Joinson highlighted that nurses displayed signs and symptoms of burnout directly linked to the caregiving required in their jobs. Charles Figley (1995) expanded upon Joinson’s definition by describing the condition as a secondary traumatic stress disorder or response directly related to the feelings of helplessness and psychological distress experienced by individuals in helping professions. 

The signs and symptoms of burnout and compassion fatigue may appear similar: chronic physical and emotional exhaustion, disassociation, absenteeism, mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD, difficulty sleeping, feeling detached and overwhelmed, and general loss of interest. However, a distinct difference is that burnout often occurs over an extended period from work overload whereas compassion fatigue can occur almost immediately as a reaction to an event or circumstance.

How to recognize compassion fatigue in teachers

Surprisingly, we don’t talk about compassion fatigue more. In a female-dominated profession, it’s often expected that our “motherly, caring” instincts work overtime, for free, and with little to no support. But this ignores every educator’s identity as a human being, with feelings, empathy, and limits in emotional and physical capacity. We care for students who may at any point in time be experiencing a variety of challenges. From hardships at home such as homelessness, food insecurity, and trauma, to challenges at school including bullying and school violence, the problems our youth face are innumerable. As we care for our students day in and day out, our empathetic nature may reach a breaking point. Emotional labor is still labor.

I discovered for myself the impact of compassion fatigue. After five years of working in the special education field teaching students with rare medical disorders and disabilities, I reached my breaking point. Within a few years, more than 10 of my students died a result of medical complications due to their disabilities. I was trying to teach, grieve, and support my grieving students at the same time. But because I wasn’t aware of the concept of compassion fatigue, the inability to take care of myself compounded by the demands of my job continued to fester until I reached full burnout.

The good news is that compassion fatigue has a quicker recovery time compared to burnout. If we recognize the signs and symptoms early, we may be able to intervene and prevent full-blown burnout. 

Knowledge is power: using our experience to heal

The first step is to educate yourself, your fellow teachers, and your administration on compassion fatigue with the help of the resources listed below, such as the Figley Institute’s Compassion Fatigue Workbook and the ABCs of Addressing Compassion Fatigue, which are available at no cost. If you are experiencing compassion fatigue that is impacting your well-being, it is OK to take a break from teaching and try a different career, either temporarily or permanently. With awareness and education about compassion fatigue, we acknowledge that teachers are human too—they have feelings that must be supported and addressed in order to nurture the next generation of compassionate leaders.

Creating a cartoon character with a back-story at SIBF 2022

Youngsters learn about the value of giving a story to their cartoon characters to help them draw better at SIBF workshop


Sharjah, November 06, 2022

Timeline 74

In a lively workshop presented by the 41st Sharjah International Book Fair in conjunction with Skilldeer, an online platform providing a wide range of courses and fun activities, youngsters had the chance to learn about animated character design and how to create a back-story to guide their illustration.

The workshop was presented by Maha Al Mheiri, an Emerati who spent many years in Japan honing her skills creating manga, a Japanese graphic novel style, originally developed in the late 19th century.

Maha greeted the young attendees in Japanese and introduced them to the basics of drawing a cartoon character using simple shapes, saying, “If you can draw circles, squares and triangles then you can draw Manga!”

The animated teacher went on to explain to children that having a story behind your character can help to define what they could look like and asked the class to think of details to associate their subjects. Starting with a name and age, she decided her character would be known as “Zoe” and would be 10 years old. She moved on to what the character’s possible likes and dislikes could be, such as, for example, liking roller coasters but possibly disliking traffic.

Expanding on these attributes, she determined strengths, weaknesses and potential “floors” of the character, explaining that “Zoe” could be fast and strong in relation to her passion for roller coasters, but could be impatient due to her dislike of traffic.

The class then moved on to putting pencil to paper as she instructed students to construct a basic figure using a circle to depict the head and simple squares and rectangles to divide up body proportions. After a couple of iterations and additional basic shapes, students found that they had already started to form a well proportioned body for their character.

After the pencil work was complete, the class took out their pens and started to flesh out their characters, adding facial details, arms, legs and eventually clothing. In no time at all, the class had created impressive characters in the Japanese Manga style, and the teacher commented on how amazing everybody’s work was. Using her techniques, the students had grasped the concept of building up their character, layer by layer, while considering their attributes to create a drawing with an origin story.

Maha ended the workshop giving the youngsters an enthusiastic farewell in Japanese and wished them well on their futures and passion for illustrating characters.
