  1. Richard Ingersoll has done a lot of research on teacher retention, including the following articles: Ingersoll, R. M., & Smith, T. M. (2003). The wrong solution to the teacher shortage. Educational leadership, 60(8), 30-33; Also, here is a 2014 article Destiny recommends from Dian Schaffhauser “The Problem Isn’t Teacher Recruiting; It’s Retention.”
  2. If you’d like to watch some teacher movies, we mentioned Dead Poet’s Society (inspiring, but Mr. Keating doesn’t do much actual teaching), Dangerous Minds (classroom management = black jacket and karate!), and Chalk (two thumbs up from Michael!)
  3. Destiny recommended this interview with Coach K, basketball coach at Duke University, by Richard Hackman when considering how to connect with your star teachers: Sitkin, S. B., & Hackman, J. R. (2011). Developing team leadership: An interview with coach Mike Krzyzewski. Academy of Management Learning & Education, 10(3), 494-501.
