The teaching profession nationwide is experiencing a major workforce shortage. Fewer college students are choosing education as their major, and more teachers are leaving the profession or retiring early. A study by the Learning Policy Institute shows that high teacher attrition is one of the leading factors driving the teacher shortage. When researchers study factors impacting attrition, two areas stand out: one, teachers value high-quality professional learning and administrative support; and two, teacher leaders desire opportunities to grow without leaving the classroom for administrative roles. This module highlights how using teacher leaders as instructional coaches can address these factors, lead to impactful shifts in instructional practice and build a culture of ongoing learning.
