This study examines the effectiveness of certain supervisory styles for different groups of teachers. A survey of teachers in one suburban district gathered teachers' reaction to methods of supervision and used demographics to identify patterns, which were compared to accepted theories. Response patterns indicate that non-tenured and experienced teachers' attitudes toward the supervisory process and their reactions to specific strategy suggestions from their supervisors were similar. Lower satisfaction scores among teachers with 6 to 10 years of experience indicate an area where teachers' needs are not met. Further study would be useful to determine the cause of this gap.
