Teaching is a highly demanding career, in which as many as 50% of teachers who teach in low-income schools, and more than 30% of teachers regardless of school’s income exit the profession in the first five years (Darling-Hammond, and Sykes, 2003). The high turnover rate has been prevailing for decades, and is the result of a profession that does not provide enough support for beginners, leaving them to strive for their own survival (Ingersoll, and Smith, 2004). Besides economic costs, high turnover also engenders organizational instability (Ingersoll, and Smith, 2004; Kersaint, Lewis, Potter, and Meisels, 2005). Further, in the words of Natalie Mehlman, who resigned from teaching in her first year in the career, while teachers can change careers “the real victims of this exodus are the children, who do not have the option of abandoning the classroom” (2002). Kersaint et. al (2005) also adds that this instability has emotional and psychological effects that impairs learning.
