What others are saying...

"I have been an instructional coach for 5 years and have found it challenging to find PD that is designed specifically for coaches. This Summit gave me exactly what I needed to grow as a coach. I'm excited and inspired to implement the actionable take-aways. I loved being able to pause the videos and create some of the strategies that I needed immediately. I'm already looking forward to the next Summit!"

"This was PD at my fingertips that I could easily access at anytime. It allowed me to learn and collaborate with experts at my own pace. The topics were diverse and inclusive. The presenters were approachable and truly wanted to support the participants. It created a network of individuals and resources that are invaluable."

"The Simply Coaching Summit helped me to feel prepared for my first year as an Instructional Coach. Being able to pause, rewind, and skip around in the videos meant that I could take notes and explore additional resources. I collected countless ideas for structuring my program, planning my time, and building relationships. It also helped me to build a support network."
