The extraordinary challenges that await all new teachers at the start of their teaching careers become even more complex when the new teachers are young, white, and female. Close to 80% of all new teachers entering the field match that demographic, and those are the teachers most often assigned to urban classrooms with high concentrations of at-risk students. Vulnerab ...show morele to challenges based on age, power, experience, authority, race, class, and gender, those new teachers are the ones that A Classroom of Her Own follows, observing their on-the-job struggles and achievements as they develop confidence and competence in instructional, professional, and cultural realms. Chapters cover:

  • Authority with colleagues, supervisors, aides, veteran teachers, parents, and students

  • Presentation of emotions, including anger, fear, frustration, and courage
  • School assignments, school environment, and school culture
  • Administrative issues, evaluation, supervision, accountability, and committee work
  • Moral dilemmas, jurisdiction, fairness, and integrity
Offering description and prescription, observation and advice, real-life experiences and tips for success from the new teachers themselves, this wonderful new resource on teacher preparation, induction, and retention should be essential reading for all teacher trainers, mentors, supervisors, staff developers, principals, and parent-community groups.
