This paper discusses the precariousness of teachers' work and the effects of the pandemic on his mental health. This is a qualitative bibliographic research that is based on some studies and references related to the theme. The main references discussed were: Luz et al. (2019), Assunção and Oliveira (2009), Facci, Urt and Barros (2018), Souza et al. (2020), Gatti (2020), among other important studies that conceptually substantiated the arguments on the subject. In the first chapter, the teacher's performance in the classroom was discussed; it is also discussed about the Burnout Syndrome, which affects several professionals and its main reasons are the environment, the load and pressure at work. The second chapter proposes a reflection on the effects of the pandemic on the mental health of teachers, having as a guiding axis the new social reality that makes it imperative to use new digital technologies in educational processes. It is important here to show how remote teaching has changed teaching practice in its entirety, both with regard to the need to reformulate teaching plans and the relationship between educator and student and educator and school. In this sense, the role of the Brazilian government in making resources viable and accessing these technologies (tools and knowledge of use) is also discussed, as well as in the reformulation of pedagogical projects, which are essential in light of the social inequality evidenced by the pandemic. It is noticed, in general, that the precariousness of the teacher's work implies the proletarianization of their working conditions and the social devaluation of the profession.
