DETAILS:  Being an Instructional Coach can be lonely. Many instructional coaches comment that they feel “stuck in the middle” because they’re not administrators yet they’re no longer teachers. The key to being a successful coach is gaining the skills necessary to coach your colleagues while maintaining a network of other coaches to utilize
as a resource. The Instructional Coaches’ Training is an opportunity to collaborate with area coaches in order to develop a toolkit to improve teaching and learning.

During each session, coaches will learn about the skills necessary to successfully coach their colleagues. In addition, they’ll spend ample time networking and sharing coaching ideas and experiences with others in the area. You won’t want to miss this unique training and networking opportunity. Participants will have the option of completing additional assignments outside of the meeting times to earn college credit.
