Excavating the Millennial Teacher Mine
Walker, Karen L.
NASSP Bulletin, v93 n1 p73-77 2009
The Millennials, born from 1980 to 2000, have begun entering the profession, and many will not stay longer than 5 years. They have a unique set of talents, skills, and work ethic, unlike those from previous generations. They are extremely eager to be successful. If strong supportive programs of mentoring, induction, career ladders, and ongoing staff development are provided, they can develop into outstanding educators, and the odds are good that they will stay in the profession.
