The Start-Up Guide to Instructional Coaching, giveaway & a 5-part series!

Guess what?


And also, I am about to start my fifth year as an instructional coach. Over the last four years, I’ve learned a lot and made a lot of mistakes. I hope I’ve done more of the former. It’s been an incredible time in my career, and I hope that any coaches reading this are as excited as I am to get their year started.

Starting the year right is so important. Teachers are well-rested and excited, so it’s a great time to learn something new. The training and planning you do at the beginning of the year can influence the professional growth of your teachers and the direction of your school throughout the year.

Over the next five weeks, I’ll be sharing a new post about starting the year right as an instructional coach. It’ll be full of practical ideas and helpful tips to help you set goals, get your space ready, plan some great training, get organized, and create a coaching support plan for the school year.

But wait – there’s more! There’s a giveaway! A BIG GIVEAWAY!

One lucky duck will win my Instructional Coaching Start-Up Kit, an over $140 value!
