What is an instructional coach?
My main role is to help teachers incorporate research-based instructional practices into their classroom to help students learn more effectively. This looks very different depending on the day and the need - I will lead whole-group professional development, but I also work with teachers one-on-one with the use of coaching cycles. Professional development is created and presented based on the needs of the district and campus, but individual coaching cycles are a partnership focused on the personalized growth of individual teachers.
In short, I love education, am passionate about educational research, and strive to help everyone be better for the sake of our students.
