Getting early career teachers off to a great start!
How can we get out new teachers off to a great start?
Let's be honest. There is so much to do during the first weeks of the school year. Everyone wants a piece of you. Everyone needs a piece of you. It's likely that your new teachers are getting some support from the district, have a mentor teacher in your building, and maybe are even getting help from an external support group sponsored by the state or someone else.
Yes, new teachers get a lot of support.
But do they get it from the right people?
New teachers don't leave because of the district office or their mentor.
According to a recent ASCD article synthesizing the recent research on early career teacher retention, 29% of first year teachers will leave the school they are in, to either exit the profession or go to another school.
