Coach, Communicate, Collaborate: Everybody Needs a Coach!

"Peer coaching is a confidential process through which two or more professional colleagues work together to reflect on current practices; expand, refine, and build new skills; share ideas; teach one another; conduct classroom research; or solve problems in the workplace."


Peer coaching allows an educator to reflect on their own practice in an informal non-evaluative process with a colleague. Working collaboratively with a peer provide an opportunity for discussion and growth for the educator.

Please join us for the Learning Forward Maryland Annual Dinner Meeting and Awards Program on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at Hellas Restaurant in Anne Arundel County. A networking Happy Hour (CASH Bar) will begin at 3:00pm and a complimentary dinner will be served at 5:00pm. This is an opportunity for our members to network, learn, and celebrate professional learning across Maryland.
