List of Services

As your instructional coach, my role is not to evaluate, enforce or judge; instead, I am here to support, listen, collaborate and learn.  I want to help you to increase your capacity as an educator, and ultimately, make your job easier.  This can be accomplished by helping teachers connect and collaborate with one another; you are each experts in the classroom with your own unique strengths to share.

This list of ideas provides some possibilities for our work together.  Please consider how you might choose to utilize my services.

  • Explore community partnerships and find experts applicable to your content area
  • Co-plan and help develop lessons and assessments that meet standards

Reflection
