The objective of this paper is to problematize the contribution of Anísio Teixeira in promoting the management of teacher welfare. The methodology used for this research is qualitative, with data collection in the literature and empirical data. The methodology is based mainly on the legacy of Anísio Teixeira, who for more than half a century had already announced the experience of this status in the conditions of employment of the teacher, as well as its overcoming through a solid and continuous training of teachers. The results point to a proposal that considers the collaborative work and the formation of intellectual networks as a way of overcoming, and of reaching the teacher welfare, so necessary to the development of a quality education. Significant signs were also found on the responsibility of school management to promote teacher well-being. The manager's dialogue, listening and sensitive attitude were considered key elements in this process. After the elaboration of this research, we conclude that the formation, be it initial or continued, the exchange with the colleagues of profession, can act as ally to the subject that is filled with something that makes sense for its existence feeds on it as a strategy of overcoming. Continuing education, taken up by managers and teachers, appears as an antidote to malaise.
