3Ps in a Pod hosts Danielle and Mary have learned a lot about induction and mentoring from this week’s podcast guest, Dr. Emily Davis.

Dr. Davis is a mentoring, coaching, and professional learning expert who founded the Teacher Development Network. She spoke in this episode about the profound shock that beginning teachers often feel when moving from studying education to starting in their own classroom.

We do have to remember that the shift into teaching is a shocking one. We call it ‘praxis shock,’ this idea that you can’t imagine what it’s going to be like and it’s often much harder than you expect. It plays on your self-esteem and your sense of efficacy. We have to be able to talk about how we support our youngest educators, our newest educators  in being socially, emotionally, mentally well so that they can continue to show up to do this work.
