Check out my latest Ed Week blog post, New Teacher Disillusionment: Inevitable or Preventable?, for thoughts on why new teachers are susceptible to disillusionment, and suggestions for helping them prevent it. Based on my experiences as a disillusioned newbie 18 years ago, and supporting hundreds of new teachers as a coach, professor, and administrator since then. Please share your thoughts AND share with your new teachers!
