Willis, Jill; Crosswell, Leanne; Morrison, Chad; Gibson, Andrew; Ryan, Mary – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
Many early-career teachers (ECTs) begin their teaching careers in rural and remote schools in Australia, and do not stay long, with consequences for their own lives, and for their students, schools and communities.

Kelchtermans, Geert – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
The paper starts from the observation that teacher attrition/retention seems to be a wicked issue: it seems to have strong face validity and a commonsense meaning, but the literature doesn't provide a clear and distinctive definition. In the first section, the author analyzes the different ways in which the issue of teacher attrition and retention…

Yinon, Hayuta; Orland-Barak, Lily – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
Many countries experience a high percentage of teachers who leave the profession before retirement. Most of the explanations, such as teacher burnout, adopt a pathogenic point of view which perceives attrition as a negative work outcome. In contrast, the qualitative project that this article is based on, which characterizes the career…

Gallant, Andrea; Riley, Philip – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017

The Australian workforce data on ECT attrition are problematized at the outset, before presenting a collective case study examining early career male…

Smith, Kari; Ulvik, Marit – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
Alarming numbers of teacher attrition are reported in many countries, including in Norway. Whereas most of the research tells about personal and professional negative experiences which have a harmful impact on teachers' resilience, a different approach is taken in the current paper. Four cases of leavers are purposefully selected because they…

Newberry, Melissa; Allsop, Yvonne – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
Previous work on teacher attrition in the US has indicated that those who stay in the profession and those who leave are not separate homogenous groups. In this study, the lived experience of former teachers is examined to determine the issues that distinguish leavers from stayers. The sample is from the state of Utah, a state with one of the…

Towers, Emma; Maguire, Meg – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2017
In the field of teacher attrition, there is a significant body of literature on why teachers leave high-needs urban schools and particularly why beginning teachers leave their schools and the profession. However, there is little research on the reasons why experienced teachers leave the teaching profession. This paper examines this subject by…

Hudson, Peter – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2016
Mentors' feedback can assist preservice teachers' development; yet feedback tends to be variable from one mentor to the next. What do mentors observe for providing feedback? In this study, 24 mentors observed a final-year preservice teacher through a professionally video-recorded lesson and provided written notes for feedback. They observed the…

Porath, Suzanne L. – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2016
Approached as an epistemology, implementing a constructivist workshop approach to literacy can challenge the traditional paradigm of teacher-focused instruction and transform to one where students construct knowledge together and learn through active engagement in authentic reading and writing. This study illustrated how two third-grade teachers…

Gorodetsky, Malka; Barak, Judith – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2016
This paper suggests a conjunction between the learning space of educational edge community (EEC) and the Deleuzeguattarian thought regarding the nature of teachers' "becoming." It attends to the emerging subjectivities of teachers/learners within an EEC, a nomadic, open, and smooth space of learning. It is suggested that autonomous…

Goroshit, Marina; Hen, Meriav – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2016
Teachers' social-emotional competencies seem to play a significant role in promoting social-emotional learning in schools. Empathic teachers were found to possess a higher level of morality; to communicate more successfully with their students; to encourage them to forge empathic relationships; and to successfully motivate their students. Yet,…

Yuan, Rui; Lee, Icy – Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, 2016
In teacher identity research, limited attention has been paid to how pre-service teachers constructed their identities by negotiating with different emotions in their practice. To fill this gap, the present study, drawing upon the approach of narrative inquiry, explores how a student-teacher--Ming--negotiated and navigated conflicting emotions in…
