Teacher Dreams and Nightmares

We explore the alleged phenomenon of teachers getting bad dreams and nightmares, more often than everyone else, starting with several engineering teachers' most memorable ones. Do other teachers really get these dreams? Why do they get them? What should they do about them, if anything? Based on a little reading and communication with experts, we developed some preliminary answers to those questions. 

Resources mentioned in this episode: 

● Research on dream content and emotions, "Thematic and Content Analysis of Idiopathic Nightmares and Bad Dreams" (Robert & Zadra, 2014): 

● Research on dream frequency and themes, "Nightmare frequency and nightmare topics in a representative German sample" (Schredl, 2010): book 

● Website of Roxanna Elden, author of the book "See Me After Class":
