Mentors help new teachers stay in the classroom

Each year roughly half a million teachers leave their school or quit the profession all together according to a study by the Alliance for Excellent Education. Many of those who quit are teachers with less than five years of experience. In order to help new teachers become more confident and competent and therefore stay longer, the Grant Wood Area Education Agency is providing mentors to first and second year teachers. The AEA has 16 instructional coaches helping out 250 new teachers in 21 districts. Each coach is an experienced teacher, on loan from their home district. They travel from school to school, spending 1-2 hours a week mentoring each new teacher.
