A Quick Message from Amelia Leighton Gamel
for back-to-school 2022-23
“I’m not here to share what I taught them, though. I’m here to share what I learned from them, because that’s what made me a better teacher.”
Listen as Amelia Leighton Gamel shares a bit about her background and how it all evolved into a high-impact, three-hour training program.
Presenting Professional Learning focused
on Keeping Great Teachers Teaching
in the 2022-23 school year
where TEACHER HAPPINESS equals TEACHER RETENTION
“According to a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, 68 percent of principals surveyed are concerned about teacher shortages and report it has been more difficult to hire qualified teachers since COVID-19. History has shown that shortages disproportionately impact students of color, students from low-income backgrounds, students with disabilities, and often rural communities.”
— U.S. Education Secretary Miguel A. Cardona, Ed.D.
Districts can spend more than $20,000 on each new hire, including school and district expenses related to separation, recruitment, hiring, and training. These investments don’t pay their full dividend when newly hired teachers leave within one or two years.
According to the NEA, approximately 48% of teachers are thinking of leaving their positions. Meanwhile, cohorts are dropping in schools of education. School districts must take steps now to retain quality educators.
