This study examined the impact of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports-based and evidence-based interventions to improve classroom and behavior management in schools all over the world. Additionally, this study also examined the factors and reasons why teacher burnout occurs in school communities. The studies used focused on the negative and positive outcomes of interventions, strategies and trainings for teachers and how they impacted teachers, students and other educators within a school community. Overall results showed that evidence-based supports and interventions made a positive and effective impact when used in classrooms. Results also highlighted that when teachers built positive and respectful relations with students, received enough support from administration and other educators, and received the correct and enough preparation and training to manage a successful classroom; stress levels reduced, and teacher burnout was reduced.
