Every teacher deserves a coach…and every coach does, too!
That’s what I believe, and it’s what drove me to start Buzzing with Ms. B: The Coaching Podcast in February of 2020. As a new instructional coach at a school, I had to build my own coaching community to get the direction and support I needed, and I felt like I was building the plane while I was flying it most of the time. Defining my instructional coaching role and figuring out how to conduct coaching cycles and build relationships with teachers was such a challenge! This pushed me to create this instructional coaching podcast as a resource for other coaches who were in the same boat as I was.
In every episode, I speak honestly about the challenges of instructional coaching and how to overcome them. We talk about working with resistant teachers, planning professional development, working as a PLC facilitator, and how to define your coaching role in a meaningful and purposeful way. Listen in to learn from instructional coaches in the field, conversations with coaching experts, and eavesdrop on coaching calls! It’s a great way to get professional learning that’s perfect for you!
