Coach's Corner

Learning and growing together

Meet the Coach: Penny Auld

I am so excited to be working with you again this school year! My main purpose as a literacy coach is to support staff members in their quest for reaching their goals for student learning and in the process I hope you will feel that you have the opportunity to become more confident and effective in your work as teachers. I am looking forward to working alongside you in our collaboration meetings, individual or team coaching cycle and informal coaching sessions.
