The Principal's Role in Teacher Development
Holland, Patricia E.
SRATE Journal, v18 n1 p16-24 Win 2008-2009
This study is based on qualitative data from interviews and observations with seven principals representing two urban high schools, two urban middle schools, and three elementary schools. The study analyzes the views held by these principals about what novice teachers need to learn and grow, and examines what these principals are doing to meet these needs. The study contributes to a better understanding of the principal's role in furthering novice teachers' professional growth. The principals' responses address three issues: What novice teachers need to learn, how they learn, and what principals should do to help novices grow professionally.
