Dear Middle School or Secondary School Teacher,
My name is Angela Tucker. I am a doctoral student at Northcentral University. I am studying how student violence in the classroom affects teachers. I want to learn if teachers receive the violence training they need to reduce stress. This stress can lead to burnout and possible exit from teaching. The results from this study can help education leaders develop better training. This training would help both student teachers and working teachers successfully handle student violence in their classrooms.
I am completing this research as part of my doctoral degree program. My supervisor and I will review the results. They will be published after approval by Northcentral University. Your involvement is voluntary. I would like to invite you to participate!
If you participate in this study, you will complete a survey on SurveyMonkey that should take you about 20 minutes or less to complete. The survey will be anonymous. All data will be encrypted. Participation in this study is limited to public middle school or secondary school teachers who are currently teaching, or have taught in the last 12 months. The following districts are included: Douglas County, Jefferson County, Denver County, Arapahoe School District, or Littleton School District. You will be able to skip any questions you don’t feel like answering. You may end your participation at any time. Additionally, you will be able to exit the survey and return to complete at a later time when it is more convenient. Please feel free to forward this email invitation to other middle and secondary school teachers meeting the eligibility requirements so they may participate in this study.
