S35: Survivor Skills for 1st to 5th year Teachers

We have all heard teachers in their early years of teaching say things like, "This is too much for me." OR "Maybe I am in the wrong place or doing the wrong job." Perhaps this is even the 20 yr teacher some days. National research indicates that one in five novice teachers leave in the first three years and as many as half will leave by the fifth year. Why do they leave? Often they are frustrated, overwhelmed and feel like they have little to no support from their administration or colleagues. In this symposium, experienced teachers will share lesson plans, activities, teaching strategies, projects, classroom management techniques and more so that novice teachers do not have to "reinvent the wheel." There will also be packets and a prize drawing for all the 1 - 5 year teachers attending the symposium.
