Coaching at Avoca West
Katie Morgan, Diane Bilcer, and Kelli Lane are working closely with teacher in a variety of settings to help build their knowledge of how to best support advanced learners in Math, English Language Arts, and Technology Integration. This support can take the form of team meetings, one-on-one coaching sessions, co-teaching in the classroom, modeling lessons, or working with small groups or individuals and sharing successes and ideas for transfer. By integrating the support in this way, our instructional coaches are able to provide teachers with the ideas they need to best support all of our learners based on their needs.
Here's to progress and continuous improvement!
