Nicole Campeau is heading to Arizona after a year teaching in Milwaukee Public Schools for which, she says, no education program could have prepared her.
Jenni Gavin is staying as an MPS teacher after “the most rewarding and exhausting 2 1/2 years of my life.”
The national study listed leadership of a school as a key factor in making or breaking new teachers, and Campeau said her experience fit that.
In an interview, she said that in the classroom, “I was a referee. I was breaking up fights constantly. I was doing little to no teaching.”
