Description: 40%-50% of new teachers leave within their first five years on the job and attrition is increasing. The presenter’s book First Aid for Teacher Burnout contains a 2-page spread of similar statistics. Grooming teacher leaders within the profession is a key strategy in battling burnout, as it empowers teachers, breaks professional monotony, supports advocacy for better conditions for teachers and students, and leads to improvements in the profession. This session gives participants strategies and resources for growing teacher leadership in themselves and/or colleagues, for all school and veteran levels.
