Teacher attrition in PGCPS is just below the national average for urban school districts. The Maryland Teacher Staffing Report (2012) produced by the Maryland State Department of Education shows that between October, 2010 and October, 2011, PGCPS had a 13.3% teacher attrition rate compared to 4.5% in Montgomery County, and 5.9% in Anne Arundel County.

Organizational Support Direct care staff often look to their direct supervisors or the organization itself for support to prevent burnout. The staff’s direct supervisor needs to be aware of the individuals employees stress level. This can be done my spending time with the individual while working directly with individuals and also listening and paying attention to what the staff member is saying. Many human service organizations offer very generous paid time off packages to their employees so that the employees have the opportunity to take time off for themselves or their families. While the paid time off package is nice the organizations need to look at other options as well to keep valuable employees and reduce burnout.

I chose the book by Neila Connors, If you Don’t Feed the Teachers, They Eat the Students!:Guide to Success for Administrators and Teachers to review. The book is an easy read and is refreshing in its approach as a guide for administrators. The author uses cooking metaphors to offer some practical advice on how to be an effective leader. Although the tone of the book is light and funny, it does a good job addressing the serious task that all school principals face, creating a positive and encouraging environment for teachers. As the book emphasizes the teachers are the foundation of the school, unhappy staff will not produce successful students.
Indicators seven and eight talks about the teacher’s ability to assess, communicate, and provide feedback to the students. Communication is a very important thing to think about, especially with the lower grades. When the students were at the carpet area doing the little partner activity, the teacher was able to walk around the carpet area to listen to some of the conversations going on. She allowed her to listen to see if the students were understanding what was being taught. Before playing the game that went along with the lesson, the teacher made sure to go over what she expects from the students.

Teacher tenure is job protection for teachers who have been employed as a teacher for one or more years depending on the state. Originally tenure was made to help low-income schools to attract, and keep, good teachers (“Should Teachers Get Tenure”) but it also protects teachers from being fired for political or personal reasons. It also prevents school districts from firing experienced teachers to replace them with less expensive teachers. The crucial issue with teacher tenure is that it is offered to a teacher after only one or so years and requires little additional effort afterwards. Once tenure is given to a teacher there are very brief and rare followups to ensure that the teacher still qualifies for tenure.

Burnout is one of the factors that may affect employees’ efficiency, a group connections, motivation and general emotional wellbeing of workers in the working environment. The idea of burnout was separately presented by Herbert Freudenberger in 1974 and Christina Maslach in 1976. The term was used to portray the mental condition of health care volunteers who were indicating such side effects as emotional depletion and loss of inspiration (Freudenberger, 1974, 1975; Maslach, 1976). Burnout is characterized as a psychological syndrome of an emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and a decreased level of individual accomplishment (Schaufeli, Maslach, and Marek 1993).
Tenured is a term used for contractual continued service, which restricts the ability to fire employees (Braun). Tenure provides protection for teachers, making it very difficult to be fired. There are many pros and cons of teacher tenure to consider. Tenure protects teachers from being fired for many reasons, whether it is personal, political, or money issues. Tenure protects the teachers, but sometimes it makes it difficult for the school to fire the teachers.
2.2 Teacher resilience A good number of studies has shown that facing various challenges for teachers in different years of their teaching is inevitable. This issue become important when teaches lack the ability of managing these difficulties which may result in burnout and attrition. To be on the positive side, equipping teachers with qualities that prevent them from frustration and make them to thrive than just survive was an ongoing concern for teacher educators and policy makers. Resilience, as a specific strategy that individuals usually apply when they face a kind of adverse situation (Castro, et al., 2010), has been attracted a lot of attention among researchers.
Academic Stress: Academic stress among students have long been researched on, and researchers have identified stressors as too many assignments, competitions with other students, failures and poor relationships with other students or lecturers (Fairbrother & Warn, 2003). Academic stressors include the student 's perception of the extensive knowledge base required and the perception of an inadequate time to develop it (Carveth et al, 1996). Students report experiencing academic stress at predictable times each semester with the greatest sources of academic stress resulting from taking and studying for exams, grade competition, and the large amount of content to master in a small amount of time (Abouserie, 1994). When stress is perceived negatively
Chapter I The Problem Introduction Every school has its own policies which stat the rules and regulations that they are implementing to control and manage the behaviors, attitudes, and activities of the students inside the school.
