Your guide to recruiting and retaining teachers

A growing teacher attrition rate, combined with fewer teachers entering the profession, has created a teacher shortage in many schools. In Building Your Building, authors Jasmine K. Kullar and Scott A. Cunningham detail how school administrators can overcome these challenges to ensure they proactively hire—and keep—great teachers. Within this practical guide, you will find best practices for recruiting and retaining teachers, from interviewing candidates and mentoring new teachers to providing meaningful recognition and more.

This book will help you improve the teacher hiring process and beyond to increase teacher recruitment and retention:

  • Learn how to hire the best teachers with practical recruitment and interviewing techniques as well as included teacher-screening interview questions.
  • Discover why recognition is important to retaining teachers and how to recognize teachers for their accomplishments.
  • Review the most effective ways to support new teachers.
  • Understand why and how to set up teacher mentoring programs.
  • Recognize why adult learning and continued professional development for teachers contributes to teacher success.

“If we—as professional educators—are going to achieve our collective mission of ensuring high levels of learning for every student, then we must rethink and redesign the way we attract, recruit, hire, assign, and support our colleagues. That is the purpose of this book! . . . I wish this book was available when I was a site principal.”
