A Teacher’s Voice; Your Most Valuable Asset

Teachers are among those in the U.S workforce that depend on a healthy and versatile voice as a tool for their profession. They are among those who are known as professional voice users. Previous findings related to teachers clearly demonstrate the economic significance and importance of vocal health. Teachers of all education levels experience an elevated loss of workdays because of voice related difficulties and the resulting use of substitute teachers, voice rehabilitation fees and even forced early retirement. This means that minimizing the voice problems for teachers is essential both in terms of economic loss but also in improving the quality of life.

While summer is rapidly approaching now is the perfect time to have your voice evaluated. As teachers, you depend on your voice to function in your profession so why not have it evaluated before any symptoms become more serious. If you have any of the following symptoms:

• Gravelly voice
• Hoarse voice
• Weak Voice
• Chronic sore throat
• Sensation of something in the throat.
• Excessive mucous in throat.
• Difficulty swallowing

You should make an appointment to have your voice evaluated.
