Coaches' Corner

News from the Room on the Corner

News from Amber

What a busy week it has been! Matt, Lindsey, and I spent some time in Albia on Tuesday, engaging in PRESS (Path to Reading Excellence in School Site) Training. We have some great tools for whole class interventions, screeners, and diagnostic testing for our readers. Please see one of us if you would like more information on how to utilize these resources with your students! Matt and I also spent Thursday and Friday at TLSS (Teacher Leader Support System) provided by the New Teacher Center. Please read Matt's news to get more information on the great learning that took place! Have a fabulous weekend.

News from Matt

Thursday and Friday, Amber and I collaborated with other Instructional Coaches, Mentor, and Lead Teachers. It was wonderful hearing different perspectives from multiple districts. We were given several tools to utilize, helping make our jobs more effective and meaningful. Amber and I will be a part of the Coralville Cohort, which is included in the Iowa Teacher Leader Support System, for the next two years. I would encourage you to stop by and ask Amber or myself for more information on our training that we took part in this past week!
