I feel validated towards sentiments I have experienced going through this process as a coach where at times I felt so overwhelmed with the expectations I had to meet, but didn't have a clear direction nor a path to meet my desired goals as a coach.

Instructional Coach

Before, I felt like there was a "right way" and "wrong way" to coach. Now, I see it's a much more collaborative process with the teacher.

Teacher

I had been "coaching" some teachers already but after taking this course I see that I was just doing everything for them. From this course I learned what kind of questions to ask and how to guide them into finding what they need.

This course gave me lots of new ideas, resources, and tools to fine-tune our coaching program!
