Last year was training time for all the Teaching and Learning Coaches. We went through coaching sessions observed and debriefed by Amaris Obregon, our T&L Director.
This year, coaching starts in full speed, so you can request a “coaching cycle” based on a specific need in your classroom. This will happen once a year for a particular teacher, but the expectation is for a long lasting impact in your teaching practice and in your classroom. You can also ask for informal coach support anytime, to help develop planning, assessment , rubrics, class observation, integration of modern literacies, etc.
If you are new to Graded, or just need a reminder about the coaching role and what the coaching cycle is, visit our Coaching Model page.
Below you will be able to hear feedback from High School teachers who participated in a coaching cycle last year, as part of my training. You will also hear about support that I provided outside the cycles.
