What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

My guiding principle is to be the coach that I always wish I had when I was a teacher. Someone who helps me to analyze the successes even when I feel like I have failed. Someone who is affirming of the things that I am doing right before they try to support me in improving my practice. Someone who understands that instructional coaching isn’t about what is wrong with someone, but what is missing from their practice.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach? 

In addition to being a classroom teacher, I have had a lot of experience in informal educational spaces, such as public lands. These experiences of having to engage and educate audiences completely different from those in the classroom were essential to my coaching practice today. Additionally, I was very fortunate to become a part of an amazing cadre of instructional coaches when I joined the PBLWorks Nat’l Faculty.
