Good Beginnings, Great Outcomes

Half of new teachers burn out and quit within five years. The statistic is about the same for clergy. To help save teachers, the New Teacher Center developed a comprehensive mentoring program that gives new teachers a good start. In an article for Faith & Leadership, a web-based resource from Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, Jennifer D. Jordan explores the positive effects of formal mentoring on retention and excellence, poses reflection questions about mentoring programs, and advocates for formal, paid mentors. Read “Good beginnings, great teachers,” and explore the related articles and interviews for additional church-related perspective.
