Redefining First-Year Teacher Support
Fox, Kathy R.; McNulty, Carol P.
School Administrator, v70 n1 p36-42 Jan 2013
Monique was the kind of student every college professor remembers fondly. She seemed to excel in all areas. She enrolled in additional course work to earn a double academic major, completed an academic honors program for which she received national recognition, earned accolades for her high grade-point average and competed on the university swim team. Upon graduation from her teacher education program, she received multiple job offers and chose to work in a small, urban school district with a diverse population of elementary students who had failed to meet annual yearly progress as defined by No Child Left Behind. She slowly began transforming from a high-achieving preservice teacher to a "flight risk," unsure if she wanted to remain in her chosen field. Ultimately, the authors came to realize that Monique's self-evaluation of her teaching was a determining factor of whether or not she would stay in the field.
