Coaching Partnerships

December Edition

Our Vision

We are excited to partner with Flint teachers to work towards personal, building, and district goals, rather than our own personal goals. We want to plan WITH you to raise student achievement. When working with you, we will keep open minds, actively listen to your celebrations and concerns, keep everything confidential, and ask lots of questions. We will know if our partnership has been successful based upon the impact we see in student growth. We hope that by learning and growing with us you will want to continue in this process and find it valuable. Our job is to be here for YOU! Please invite us to help you in ANY way we can.

Coaching Cycle Model

We will be following this 6 step process, but will live mostly in steps 4 and 5

What does Student-Centered Coaching Look Like?

  • Roughly 4-6 Weeks
  • Co-planning (lessons/subjects of your choice) 1 time per week
  • Implement plans and co-teach 1-2 days per week
  • Can take place individually or in groups

The document above explains the process of the coaching cycle.

  • Step 1 and 2: Conversations about what you want your students to know and be able to do
  • Step 3: Pre-Assess - can be NWEA or an ILC focus
  • Step 4 and 5: Co-Plan and Co-Teach (this is where we will spend the bulk of our time)
  • Step 6: Post-Assess and measure success
