COVID-19 challenges, student behavior push California teachers to resign

Lynda White, who taught English, creative writing and social studies for 21 years at El Monte High School in the small town of Orosi in the Central Valley, began having panic attacks this school year while driving to campus.

“I sat in my car, breathing slowly, trying to calm down because I knew that when I got to campus it would be awful,” White said.

The veteran educator was among the thousands of California teachers who quit their jobs before this school year ended. Some teachers marched on teaching challenges during a pandemic, while others were afraid to contract COVID-19 and some were offered better-paying jobs. Many have just burned.
