(Webinar) Coaching the Coaches: How Districts Can Support Teacher Leaders
May 16, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Research shows that instructional coaching can have a positive impact on all teachers’ practice and can improve student outcomes. But who’s coaching the coaches?
To maximize the success of coaching, the coaches themselves need professional development and support. Coaches, who are typically former classroom teachers, must learn how to work with adult learners, which requires a whole new skill set.
This webinar will feature Lynn Kepp from the New Teacher Center, which works with school districts across the country to provide professional development for coaches, and Barbara Leete, an instructional coach in Iowa. They will share the best practices for a successful coaching program, where both teachers and coaches are supported.
