Principals' Roles in Supporting the Induction of Special Education Teachers
Correa, Vivian I.; Wagner, Jennifer Y.
Journal of Special Education Leadership, v24 n1 p17-25 Mar 2011
Principals are a critical component of creating a positive school environment that supports new teachers to meet the diverse needs of their students. The induction process for beginning special educators can often be more challenging for school administrators and may require different supports than those provided for novice general educators. The principal's role in the induction of special educators is to (a) promote a positive school climate, (b) serve as an instructional leader, and (c) support induction and mentoring programs. The implications of the research suggest practices that administrators can use to support beginning special education teachers. (Contains 1 table.)
