Teacher retention is of utmost importance at a time when so many young teachers choose not to remain in the profession. Teachers exiting the profession cite a lack of administrative support throughout their first years in the classroom. Implementing mentoring programs for beginning teachers will guarantee help and assistance during the difficult time of adjusting to a new career. Mentoring programs are critical when teachers are leaving the profession as quickly as they are leaving. Mentoring programs strengthen faculty relationships within their school community while increasing teachers’ motivation and drive to remain in the profession. If teachers are appreciated, supported, and intrinsically motivated, they will want to be in schools, and they will remain.
