First year Instructional Coach
I have been teaching science for 24 years at Conant High School in D211. This year I was hired as one of our school’s instructional coaches. Before I started in my new role as instructional coach, I thought the role primarily helped struggling teachers or teachers who needed help in a specific area in their classrooms. After almost a year, I have learned that an instructional coach can not only help the teachers in need, but a coach can improve the skills of the most talented teachers in the building. Finding the right teachers, the ones that can act like multipliers, has a profound effect on the building’s view of instructional coaches. I have enjoyed my new role and I look forward to growing more in this position.
