Instructional Coaching should be IMPACTFUL, not OVERWHELMING!

It was hard making the transition from a classroom teacher to an instructional coach. I had no idea what I was doing and was left to figure out how to approach a teacher as a coach, conduct coaching cycles and host data meetings. It took years for me to create a system and gain the knowledge to be impactful.  Now, I want to help you to become an IMPACTFUL instructional coach.

I'm ready to be IMPACTFUL!

When I first became an instructional coach, I felt like I was missing some steps when it came to helping teachers in the classroom.

Many teachers didn't understand my role. 

Teachers in the building were fearful that I was going to be the tattletale of what they didn't know, and I struggled to build those teacher-coach partnerships.

I struggled to visit classrooms, provide feedback, host data meetings and start and complete coaching cycles. 

At the end of the day, I struggled to help teachers get better.

But in the midst of my struggle, I had an AHA moment...

I realized that I needed to start to research and learn exactly what an instructional coach did.

I worked on creating a system that allowed me to get organized, plan my meetings and conversations. 

I practiced coaching conversations in the mirror, studied data to prepare for meetings and researched coaching strategies I would use with teachers. 

I empowered myself with knowledge that helped me to create a step-by-step system in helping teachers in the classroom.

Teachers began to respond to my coaching efforts. 

Teachers were beginning to enjoy our conversations and meetings.

I was prepared and things started to change in the classrooms. 

Students weekly scores began to improve and classroom cultures transformed. 

Reality Check...

The demands and expectations on classroom teachers keep rising and many teachers don't know how to deal with it all and YOU, "the coach", are just another thing added to the list.

This can create a rough road for you to travel as an instructional coach. 

And that’s why I’m here...

To offer the GPS as you travel the road ahead.

As you search for what to do next,

I want to introduce to you...
