1. Instructional Coaching Series

Program: Professional Development

Audience: PK-12 Instructional Coaches (Literacy Coaches, Math Coaches, Personalized Learning Coaches, Technology Coaches….all are welcome!)

Dates: 10/2/2019 to 3/27/2020

With the increasing demands being placed on teachers and administrators, many schools have looked to create new structures of support. Instructional Coaching is a model in which teachers are asked to step out of the classroom to provide targeted support, ideas, and resources to their colleagues. This workshop is designed to provide support for Instructional Coaches in order to maximize their time and impact.

During this four day series, Coaches will be asked to review a variety of resources around the impact of instructional coaching and how to maximize time with teachers. Collaborative conversations will be encouraged so that Coaches have a safe environment in which to share both peak moments and pitfalls. An opportunity will also be given for participants to set a personal goal around their role as a coach and take a deep dive into how to become stronger and more confident in their craft. Ultimately, the series will be designed based on the needs of the participants as they progress throughout the school year.
