Staff Development Overview

News stories and statistics show that nearly 50% of all new teachers leave the profession within the first five years and teacher follow-up surveys show that apart from retirement, family and financial issues are the top two reasons for leaving. Why then should educators continue doing what they do?

Dan has an answer! For several yeas now, teachers and administrators have thoroughly enjoyed Dan's message for the students and have asked if he would consider doing something geared for them… Now he has!
