Recruiting and Retention Practices that Attract Quality Teachers While Impacting Teacher Wellbeing
The practices that influence teacher retention are important for the future of education and the emotional wellbeing of teachers. Without changes in recruitment tactics to fill the gaps where teachers are lacking, current teachers are left to fill the gaps leading to stress, burn and exiting the profession. New teachers and 20 years plus educators have a higher attrition rate. Looking at how education is evolving and the rate at which teachers are leaving leads to an understanding of issues that can be resolved if educational professionals work with legislators to change laws and seek changes that lead to innovative pedagogical methods. This paper examines practices that could aid both teacher retention and recruitment, as well as educator well-being improving best practices in the state of Kentucky.
