#3 The Power of Coaching
Three of our Instructional Coaches presented an awesome session on PD that received rave reviews on Twitter. Our Middle School SLMC and IC did a great session on PD on demand. Three of our high school teachers presented their own breakout sessions for Math and Social Studies. It was very empowering to me to know that I had a role in helping them grow professionally be encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone. I enjoyed the conversations over dinner about who on our staff would benefit from coming to NCTIES next year. #ProudMamaBear
My action items: Reach out to teachers at our school who might not think they are ready to present to a large group and encourage them to write a proposal or attend the conference next year.
Here are the sessions presented my group of chickadees.
