From the classroom......
"I asked Deb to come in and help me monitor how many of my students were using their cellphones when they weren't supposed to be. She gave me a list at the end of the period with no judgement on her part. It allowed me to know how big of a problem that was causing with student engagement."
"For a whole quarter, Deb worked with me to find strategies for building a positive classroom environment that engaged learners and she gave tips for coping with disruptive behaviors and managing distraction."
"Deb's approach as instructional coach is one of sheer observation, not judgment. She doesn't make you feel beneath her in any way, which allows you to feel comfortable asking for advice. She makes it evident that she's here to help and that any frustrations/problems shared with her are kept in strict confidence."
"Deb is an angel dressed in leathers, sent down from heaven on her Harley to save us all.!"
