Almost half of new teachers leave the profession within their first few years. Teachers need support, mentoring, encouragement and, most importantly, hope in order to survive the challenges of their first years of teaching.
Burned In features essays from today's most visionary educators, including Jim Burke, Peter Elbow, James Loewen, Gregory Michie, Sonia Nieto, Kirsten Olson, and Parker Palmer. Their personal stories will help fuel new and veteran educators' passion for teaching so they stay ''burned in'' instead of burning out. The book includes inspiring stories of veteran public school teachers, as well as powerful research findings about what teachers need to succeed in today's classrooms.
