Teaching middle school is not for the faint of heart. But if you're called to do it, you know there's nothing else quite like it. Join us in discussing what works - and what doesn't.

Mentoring Resources

Good day Edutopia Middle School teachers.

I have always aspired to teach. As such, I decided to start a master's program in education this summer to help me transition from scientist to middle school science teacher. I intend on going back to my home state (Michigan) to teach in a high-need school (e.g. Detroit) upon my husband's completion of his degree program. I want to make a difference and share what I love.

I keep hearing that 50% of teachers quit within their first five years, and that terrifies me. I would like to know what I can do NOW to best serve my future students.

Would you be willing to advise me on how I could connect with a mentor currently in a high-need school, or point me to any mentoring resources available for teachers in training?

Thank you for your assistance!
Shannon
