Meet Your Coach
Instructional Coaches are vital to bringing evidence-based practices into classrooms by working with teachers and other school leaders. At its core, instructional coaching involves two people: the classroom teacher and the coach. Coaches work one-on-one and in small groups with teachers, providing guidance, training, and other resources as needed. Together, they focus on practical strategies for engaging students and improving their learning. Coaches also are often responsible for providing or arranging professional development activities for all teachers in a school or district.
According to Jim Knight, Teachers who were regularly coached one-on-one reported that:
They made significant changes in their instructional practice.
Their students were more engaged in the classroom and enthusiastic about learning.
Attendance increased dramatically in their classes.
