Teacher Turnover: Invasion of the Classroom Rookies

Help! New teachers are taking over my school!

This year, we hired about seven teachers and for a small school that’s a lot. As a new school that just graduated our first class, this is the first year we’ve had teacher turn over at my school.

I suppose that’s the way things go now – people don’t seem stay in the same place for more than four or five years. In fact, a recent Department of Labor poll reports that the average person (all ages represented) has been at their current job for only four years.
