Retaining your best teachers is one of the most crucial — and difficult — aspects of running a school. There are many strategies for this, but it’s important, above all, to remember to treat all of your teachers professionally. Take all concerns seriously. Additionally, allowing schedules that are as flexible as possible is another important way to keep teachers. Finally, make sure to show as much appreciation for their work as possible. If teachers don’t feel like their role is being taken seriously, they will look for other options.
- Teachers want to be respected and treated like the professionals that they are.
- Make sure that the teachers have the supplies they need, so they don’t have to dip into their own pockets.
- Check in with teachers to see if they are having difficulties that you can address.
