Dealing with Disillusionment

View the webinar “Dealing with Disillusionment”

Thousands of teachers enter the profession every year with visions of making a difference in the lives of their students.  At some point during their first year, novice teachers hit “The Wall” – a point where they experience mental and physical exhaustion.  Add feelings of ineffectiveness, and new teachers can really go through a tough time.  This type of situation contributes to the 51% attrition rate for teachers during their first five years in the profession.  Join founder Shannon Holden as he reveals strategies to help novices deal with feelings of disillusionment during this difficult time.
