We believe that we are partners on the educational journey, and our side-by-side, “we’re in this together” approach gives educators the skills, confidence, and courage to make the choices that lead to a positive difference in the lives of the students they serve. Through the development of habits of mind and skillful communication, we collaboratively cultivate a learning culture for adults and students alike. By fostering a stance of curiosity, examining and questioning our own beliefs, and focusing on the instructional core, we can sustainably improve teaching and learning.
When coaching is designed well, coaches can help semi-skilled teachers as well as skilled educators refine their practice on the job in all essential areas...and help to ensure that every student is working with a highly-qualified, caring teacher.
