How to Start a Teaching Career on the Right Foot
While some districts struggle to recruit teachers, many also struggle to retain them. Years of research highlight school-based factors that can reduce teacher attrition, but how can teachers help themselves? In this Q&A-based webinar, special guest Roxanna Elden, an author and teacher, will discuss ways teachers can thrive despite challenges, including by managing expectations, building mentoring relationships, and taking advantage of other school supports. In addition, school leaders will get advice on how they can better support their teachers, while creating a more attractive environment for recruits.
Guest:Roxanna Elden, teacher and the author of See Me After Class: Advice for Teachers by Teachers, a guide that has helped new teachers navigate potential pitfalls as they transition from training to the classroom. More recently, she has created and launched the "Disillusionment Power Pack," a free, one-month series of emails to help new teachers through the most difficult part of the school year.
