They call it the "Great Resignation", as 1 in 5 non-retired adults in the US left their jobs during the pandemic. For teachers, the numbers are probably even higher and this "Brain Drain" is especially critical because teaching is a highly skilled profession with a long trajectory of preparation. Even with critical needs certification programs in place to "fast track" educators into classrooms ( not ideal), the gaps are huge and glaring. "Ten Reasons to Choose Teaching Again. No, You're Not Crazy" takes a hard look at the crisis in recruitment and retention of teachers and begins a healing process, using humor, research, and coaching to assist and support the remnant that survived the pandemic. Teaching is a wonderful profession that needs a makeover. We will do some healing, some helping, some hoping together and begin to restore teachers' joy in their chosen profession with this invigorating session.
