Coaching Cycle begins anew. Between Feb. 3 and April 29th, please schedule a time with Belissa to do a coaching cycle. The majority of you have had her in your classes this fall, now we are moving to Belissa working with you, watching you teach a lesson, and debriefing the lesson together. She will let me know who has this scheduled. Anticipate the cycle taking about 2 weeks time by the time you meet to discuss what she is watching, the actual observation, and another meeting to debrief.
