Teacher retention has been a hot topic the last couple of weeks (and it should be) thanks to a beautiful letter of resignation that went viral. LOTS of chatter came from the letter-some good and some bad. A highlight for me is this video starring real teachers sharing the reasons why THEY STAY.
Parents, teachers, community members-watch and embrace this. Share with your friends.

Do you teach? Why do you stay?
How can we bring the best and brightest to our field and how can we help them stay? I have a few ideas, but that will need to be another post!
