Exploring and understanding the lived experiences of highly effective teacher stayers could offer important insight into decreasing the turnover rate by examining factors that have encouraged and enabled them to stay in a profession where many of their colleagues are choosing to depart. These findings captured the totality of the phenomenon of five highly-effective elementary teachers’ decisions to remain in their profession as well as summarized their perception of the teacher-environment interactions that influence their decision to stay. Understanding the essence of teacher retention for these five highly effective teacher stayers has implications for division level policies and teacher training programs.
