"Our profession expects and demands a lot of teachers. One of the biggest things we should do is provide more support to new teachers. I envision roaming 'coaches' going from district to district, mentoring and supporting new teachers. Having a mentor at your school is great, but new teachers often feel bad asking their mentors questions because they know the mentors are busy with their own classrooms. If we had educators whose only role was to be one of these roaming mentors, teachers might be willing to lean on them a little more."Lindsay Frevert (NJ '16)
