* Advice on Making a Mid-Career Change to Teaching

Gladis Kersaint, Denisse R. Thompson, Jeri Asaro, Val Brown, Pia Wong, Megan Allen, and Anne Jenks share their advice to those considering a mid-career change into the teaching profession.

* Career-Changers Are 'Attractive Teaching Candidates'

Dr. Jenny Grant Rankin, Marcy Webb, Otis Kriegel, Peter P. Leibman, and Karla St. John contribute their thoughts on people considering making a mid-career change into the teaching profession. I've also included several comments from readers.

* Seven Strategies For Working With Student Teachers

This final post in the series features what I think is a particularly interesting combination--a quest response from Ted Appel, the principal of the inner-city school where I teach, who describes the innovative requirements he insisted upon if a university was interested in placing student teachers with us; followed by a commentary from Pia Lindquist Wong, director of a university teaching credentials program who found that her ideas dovetailed with those of Ted's--the two then developed a partnership.

* Student Teachers 'Should be Colleagues'

Emily Geltz, Linda Rief, Carol Ann Tomlinson, Jessica Bennett and Jane Fung contribute to this post.

* Letting Student Teachers 'Sink or Swim' Is 'Not Permissible'

Michael Opitz and Michael Ford; PJ Caposey; Patty O'Grady; and Sally Zepeda all share their advice to student teachers and their supervisors.

High school principal Eric Sheninger, middle school principal Pete Hall, and superintendent Pamela Moran share their advice.
