Get your graduating teachers’ contact information, and keep in touch with them. Only by keeping track of every teacher that goes through your program for at least five years will you be able to assess the impact your program is having on teacher retention. As anyone who has ever tried to track teachers knows, however, following teachers once they have entered the working world is a complex and difficult endeavor.
Many PhysTEC sites have done an exemplary job tracking their teachers, and have reported impressive teacher retention rates that are substantially higher than those nationally reported for STEM teachers.
