Drawing on narratives of five beginning teachers, Millennial Teachers explores the tensions in teachers’ young careers and how changing social, economic, and technological conditions of our current era both afford and constrain teachers’ identities and in contexts in which they work. Examining case studies of beginning teachers, Hallman draws a generational portraits of novice teachers and identifies the challenges inherent in transitioning from pre-service teacher to in-service teacher. This book synthesizes these teachers’ views on a range of topics and provides an understanding of the evolving pressures and possibilities of future teachers of the "millennial" generation.
