Workshop Description:
Providing effective supervision to teachers is essential to retain staff and provide a welcoming and productive learning environment. Given that teaching is often done with limited direct observation, it is important to coach teachers so that they can use their own professional goals and self-awareness to build their skills. This workshop will focus on key coaching techniques to help teachers thrive in the classroom.

Workshop Learning Objectives - Participants will:

  • Describe their own coaching style.
  • Prioritize areas of feedback for teaching staff.
  • Ask open-ended questions to facilitate self-discovery.
  • Create a plan for goal setting with staff.
