“Teachers are the number one in-school influence on student achievement.”
LPI Teacher Turn Over: Why it Matters and What We Can Do About It, 2017.
” Being part of this series has impacted my instruction in an amazing way. I have deeper relationships with students and families. My classroom is more inclusive and I have the same high standards for all kids. Students are sharing more. Learning is increasing and school is more fun for me and my students. It is a ton of work. And I am validated with every positive parent message, student hug, thank you note, and when they cheer as they achieve a new academic hurdle. I am making a difference with myself and a lot of people who have felt less acknowledged in other environments.”
What is MTI CENTRS?
- MTI-CENTRS believes that teachers matter, therefore teacher retention matters. At MTI, we recognize our pivotal role as a support for our members as employees, as well as professionals. The project offers ongoing support for members and attempts to increase teacher retention by addressing teacher satisfaction, efficacy, and success. MTI CENTRS is funded through an NEA Great Public Schools Grant.
