Cardona: Creating environments where teachers can thrive is key to keeping good educators
When MaKenzie Mosby reflects on the four years she taught seventh-grade math, her feelings are mixed.
She loved her students, families, fellow teachers and staff at her Memphis charter school — and still does. But from the start of her career, even before the pandemic upended education, it became increasingly clear to Mosby that, for her, the profession wouldn’t be sustainable.
This is not only a problem in Memphis. Retaining teachers like Mosby and the thousands of other exhausted professionals across the nation who have left the education field was top of mind for U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona and the approximately 4,000 school leaders and industry professionals who discussed solutions at the School Superintendents Association’s National Conference on Education Thursday and Friday in Nashville. The conference wraps up on Saturday.
