Instructional Coaching

Instructional coaches partner with teachers to help them improve teaching practice. To do this, ICs collaborate with teachers to get a clear picture of current reality, identify goals, pick teaching strategies to meet the goals, monitor progress, and problem solve until the goals are met. Coaching is an essential component of an effective professional development program. A coach can foster conditions in which deep reflection and learning can take place, where a teacher can take risks to change practice, where powerful conversations can take place, and where growth is recognized and celebrated.
