Obstacle: Reducing Teacher Turnover and Improving New Teacher Support & Retention

With the ongoing teacher shortage, and new teachers leaving education in droves, the leadership at this Virginia School District recognized the importance and opportunity to develop a system to fully support and mentor their new teachers. Quiana and her team set out to create inspired and engaged educators who choose to make teaching their life-long profession, reduce teacher turnover, and ultimately improve student achievement.

Solution: Utilize collaborative video coaching and exemplar videos via Teaching Channel’s EMPOWER Platform

Encouraging teachers to self-reflect, set goals, and improve practice.

With the EMPOWER Platform, teachers are easily able to record their practice and share their favorite clips with their administrators. Quiana emphasizes how this collaborative process has been far less intimidating for new teachers compared to having observers traditionally pop into classrooms. The Platform allows school and district leaders to provide frequent and individualized feedback to new teachers in specific areas, opening up productive discussions and strategy development.

Additionally, by providing access to the robust Teaching Channel Video Library, available within the Platform, their new teachers can discover best practices from classrooms across the country and bring inspiring clips to their teaching toolbox and coaching sessions.
