We believe that teachers are doing one of the most important jobs there is: educating our future. That's why it's so vital to find and retain the best teachers you can—those with the passion, dedication, and drive for helping students learn and develop the skills they need to thrive.
But, increasingly schools are finding it more and more difficult to recruit and retain teachers. We likely don't need to remind you of the reality of the teacher shortage: enrollment in teacher prep programs has declined by more than one-third since 2010; each year, about eight percent of teachers leave the profession entirely; and math and science positions are particularly hard to fill in most states in the country.
For these reasons—and many others—developing effective strategies for attracting and retaining teachers is of the utmost importance. In fact, that’s why we created XR Technologies—because we believe in a future where all students have equitable access to a great education… and we want to help schools get there! Let's dive into some strategies to help you find and keep stellar teachers for your school.
