Our Coaching Model

Developing Teachers That Make a Difference

Instructional coaching practices improve the quality of teaching and instructional practices. Teacher-centered coaching is a coaching strategy that is focused on teacher actions in the classroom, versus student-centered coaching, which focuses on looking closely at student-level data.

Quality of teaching will improve through rigorous coaching and mentoring, in turn resulting in increased teacher effectiveness and therefore improved student outcomes.

After a thorough needs analysis and initial meeting with administration, goals will be established, and careful selection of high-need areas will be focused upon for the duration of the coaching cycle.

Setting goals with leadership and aligning to school's vision and setting attainable goals (short-term and long-term) with teachers.

5) Reflection

After a collaborative discussion between teacher - coach, the teacher will reflect upon coach feedback, and prepare and plan to implement the recommendations and suggested strategies.
