Supporting Good Teachers During These Stressful Times

I began reading this article and immediately thought of the amazing teachers that I have worked with that chose to retire earlier than they had planned because of  similar circumstances.  Not to mention the times I have thought, ” I don’t know if I can do this anymore” while working until late in the night to catch up with the many procedural tasks that had piled up.  I hope that when I become a leader I will be able to create solutions to these struggles and support the teachers that work with me.  I believe that students’ attitudes towards their school and education are directly effected by the enthusiasm of their teachers.  All good teachers have learned the skill of “putting on a good face” and “acting as if” but we are human and something must give!

Why Good Teachers Quit?
