The number of special educators leaving the field every year is well known and a cause for great concern. Special educators leave their jobs in greater numbers than their general education counterparts for many reasons, but we do know that a positive school culture has a tremendous effect on the success rate of a new teacher. When it comes to supporting and retaining new staff, administrators have the power to create collaborative professional environments that will help special educators thrive in the field.
Catherine Creighton Martin and Clara Hauth, authors of the brand-new edition of The Survival Guide for New Special Education Teachers, will guide administrators through the process of creating a culture that helps special education teacher’s transition to their new roles and thrive in the classroom ― and beyond.

- Understand of the needs of new special education teachers.
- Identify universal challenges faced by special education teachers and strategies to overcome them.
- Describe multiple resources available to create a collaborative environment and help educators work together.
- Employ strategies to enhance new educators’ performance.
