This session helps with planning a coaching conversation with teachers. It will help coaches to reflect on the conversation before it happens to deepen the impact.

In this session, teacher leaders will:

1. Uncover common mistakes of running professional learning communities [PLC's]

2. Gain strategies to make PLC's productive and efficient

3. Create a long-term plan to implement transformational PLC's at their school sites immediately

We are halfway through another year of unknowns, and it's important that we are still tracking where we are in our curriculum, standard mastery, and pacing guides. In this session, I will guide coaches and instructional leaders through some mid-year pulse check processes for them to take back to school with them in January to implement immediately.

Co-teaching can be a challenge for instructional coaches, but it's one of the most valuable tools in your toolbox! In this session, I'll share tips and ideas for making co-teaching work for you and the teacher. Learn about how to prepare and plan together, what roles you can serve during a co-taught lesson, and how to turn the experience into learning for you and the teacher!

Are you a new coach trying to provide feedback to teachers? It’s hard to know how and when to give feedback to teachers! What if I told you that there was a difference between coaching and feedback? In this session, I’ll walk you through when to coach teachers and when the right time is to give feedback! Once you know the difference and the purpose of coaching and feedback, you’ll be more effective in helping teachers change their instructional practices!

Do you remember the first person you worked with within your career? Well, Tammy was mine. She believed in my potential as a young coordinator who had no idea what I was doing. I was so nervous about meeting with her because; I had no idea how to do what I do, but she made me feel like a rockstar after our first session. Her words helped shaped me into the person I am today. She made me feel like an edu celebrity every time I walked into her room, or she emailed me. This will probably be the most challenging session I ever lead, but I must do it. I will be sharing the art of coaching. We will talk about all of these things I do and learned from Tammy. I will walk through how to coach and be successful in coaching. Tammy always called me a teacher of teachers, never a coach or coordinator.

Do you find yourself traveling to support multiple campuses? Coaches sometimes can find themselves in the position of being one of the lucky ones that serve multiple campuses! I like to reframe this challenge as a positive, rather than an obstacle. I like to see it as we get the honor of being able to impact even more teachers and students across multiple campuses! Although this is an honor and privilege, there are a few things a coach spread across multiple campuses has to think through and figure out to maximize their time and impact. From how to provide equitable coaching to the many teachers across the campus, to organizing the coaching work so that it is efficient and flowing, to even how to form organic partnerships when you do have that many teachers to be responsible for coaching and supporting. In this session I’ll share with coaches, who like me, have multiple coaching homes (or campuses) and how we can think through organic and authentic ways to establish partnerships early on with the multiple teachers we are coaching & supporting; allowing educators to see our coaching value and begin forming trusting relationships with us. I even want to share a few helpful strategies that coaches who serve multiple campuses can use to help keep their coaching work organized and effective.

Planning meaningful professional development can be overwhelming for new instructional coaches and facilitators. How do you make the learning meaningful? How do you keep adult learners engaged? How do you ensure the learning gets carried over into the classroom? These questions will be answered in this session which will cover the following topics: Understanding the adult learner Creating a sense of purpose for learning Preparing meaningful and engaging learning Launching participants toward success The goal is to provide participants with knowledge and tools for teaching adults so that they feel confident in planning and facilitating professional learning of teachers.

Clarity is very important for a professional learning community to work together to be a high-performing team. Teams need clear expectations and shared goals. I will share my PLC journey and explain five strategies that will help increase the impact of your professional learning communities by adding clarity to the PLC process.

The key to successful coaching is building solid relationships. No matter how much you know, without strong relationships, change, growth, and forward progress are very difficult. Overview:

(1) relationships are important,

(2) coaching styles, and

(3) linking styles to specific tools and strategies to build relationships that will transform their coaching experience.

The session will begin understanding relationships, their importance and the aspects of strong partnerships. Jim Knight identifies partnership as the first of “Seven Success Factors for Great Instructional Coaches”. Some of the ideas we will discuss, supported by Jim Knight’s work, include equity, voice, choice, dialogue, and reciprocity.

Coaching styles include facilitative, dialogical and directive. No matter the style of your district or your personality, relationships are central to the success of the coaching relationship. Key characteristics of each will be shared so participants can decide the strategy and tools they will use.

The session will give participants tools and strategies to build relationships that reflect best practices that match their coaching style. Much like my video, I will be vulnerable with the audience about mistakes I have made along the way. This will support the narrative that they too can make mistakes (and so can their teachers).

Did you know research shows virtual coaching is just as effective, or possibly even more effective than face-to-face coaching? Join this session to learn more about starting a virtual coaching program or tweaking an existing program. Participants will leave with a ton of resources to help them reach more teachers, coach more effectively, and be more efficient. Examples of resources include video flyers, coaching cycle, coaching plan overview, documentation, roles and responsibilities, surveys, and coaching summaries. An asynchronous course for developing a virtual coaching program will also be shared. You don’t want to miss this session!

The research is clear: Structured Literacy and a systematic, explicit approach to foundational skills is the best method for teaching ALL students how to read and extrapolate meaning from texts. Join us for this session as we review the major research findings and discuss ways in which we, as instructional coaches, can guide and support our teachers as they shift away from Balanced Literacy & Whole Language methodologies and learn new routines and instructional approaches rooted in the "science of reading" evidence-based practices. Participants will receive resources/ suggestions regarding collaborative norms, structured literacy planning tools, as well as instructional routines and materials.

FAlLURE is not an option; What is a reentry plan and why do we need one?

After any school break, teachers and coaches need to find their way back into the classrooms and into their routines. The reentry process always requires a focus on four key areas of resetting: restitution, recharging, redefining, and reentry planning.

However, following this pandemic, the path to reentry has become cloudy and difficult to navigate. Schools are not always providing the guidance needed, and the definition of normal keeps changing.

Without a clear plan, the risk of stress, burnout, and disenchantment increase.

Therefore, teachers and coaches alike need to create their own reEntry plans that are personalized, detailed, and flexible with built-in momentum boosters to keep them on track. This holds true for ANY reentry – whether it be a long summer break or an extended weekend. And you need a plan every time!

This session will give coaches:

1. Clear actionable steps to create personalized reEntry plans for themselves.

2. Tips on how to support teachers in creating their reEntry plans.

3. Strategies to navigate the new normal – whatever that ends up being!

4. Guidelines for creating momentum boosters to keep everyone on track.

5. Purposeful measures to avoid burnout and stay enchanted with the world of education!

Whether it’s the beginning of the year or the middle of the year, showing up at a new campus and knowing exactly what to do is difficult to pinpoint. I’ll break down my must-dos for showing up as a new coach or at a new school. Building trusting relationships will be at the forefront of every decision you make as a coach. Learn to strategically build relationships while laying the groundwork for who you are as a coach.

The session title is Measuring Your Impact as an Instructional Coach. The objective of this session is to support coaches by exploring how they can be intentional and reflective coaches.

We explore the following points:

1. Why we must be reflective practitioners

2. Ways to measure your effectiveness and impact

3. Action steps after receiving feedback from coaching sessions and professional development

Teachers may shy away from EL strategy implementation because they are overwhelmed, need support figuring out where to start, don’t know strategies that will meet the needs of their English Learners, or maybe they only have one or two EL students so they just pull them aside and teach them without regularity. Do these sound familiar? We will work on three strategies that are easy to implement, help meet the needs of EL’s at any stage of their development, and can be used across all curriculum allowing students to build academic language throughout the day. Because they are easy and support language growth teachers will feel confident applying these strategies throughout their day. Also, I will give you three tips that will help you get into the classroom and get the teachers applying these strategies. Join me to learn about three easy-to-implement strategies that build language and three tips to get teachers using them!

Have you been experiencing unproductive behaviors from your stressed-out teachers during the pandemic? Neuroscience explains why that is happening! Come learn the reasons behind these unusual behaviors and highly effective strategies that will empower your exhausted and frustrated teachers. This will not add to your plate, or theirs! As their coach, you are the content expert. Let's remove barriers that will make your coaching even more effective.
