Benefits of 1-on-1 Coaching

Consistent

Improving instructional practice requires focused, ongoing support from an experienced educator. 

Efficient

Education leaders wear many hats. We’re there in-between observations, to solve problems-of-practice.

Personal

Teachers can be vulnerable and work on their chosen area of focus: classroom management, planning, content, etc.

I’ve been to some amazing workshops, but usually felt overwhelmed when I came back to my classroom and tried to implement everything I had learned.

Working with Jeff from Room to Discover was different. He took the time to get to know my personality and teaching styles – it always felt like I was being supported, rather than judged.

How does Virtual Coaching Work?

We match every teacher with an instructional coach who is uniquely suited to their needs and goals. We offer both half-year (20 weeks) and full-year (40 weeks) engagements.

Weekly sessions alternate between 40-minute video calls and ‘evidence sessions.’ During video calls, teacher and coach target a specific objective and plan an action item. For evidence sessions, teachers submit classroom videos, data or student artifacts, which the coach reviews and provides feedback. 

Every video call and evidence session is recorded in our coaching management system, making it easy for teachers to track their own progress and share with colleagues and administrators.

How it Works

 

Connect with your coach twice each month to plan lessons, assess student work, or even review video footage from your classroom. 

Your coach is available when YOU need them. You can connect by phone or video chat.

Looking for a boost?

Educators who are looking for advice and perspective benefit most from our monthly coaching plan

Start by scheduling a goal-setting session and completing your self-assessment. Then, you’ll connect with your coach twice a month for support and to review progress.

Looking to transform your practice?

We’ve found that a four-month coaching cycle is the most effective way to experience transformative growth in your teaching practice.

Each cycle includes two monthly sessions, your initial goal-setting session and an end-of-cycle progress review. 

Month 1

Free consultation to review your reflection and set goals.

Two coaching sessions: plan lessons, review student work, or review best practices.

Months 2-3

Continue with two coaching/planning sessions per month.

Review and update your progress each month.

Month 4

Two regular coaching sessions.

Final end-of-cycle session to review overall progress towards your goals.

School Leaders

Schedule a consultation to learn how we can help you help your teachers. Our coaches work with high-performing teachers to go the extra mile, or provide foundational support to new team members.

Reflection

Reflect on your strengths as an educator. Set Goals. Create a plan for success 

Planning

Deepen your understanding of standards. Plan engaging units and lessons.

Practice

Develop teaching competencies, including questioning, facilitation, and management.

Assessment

Review data and student artifacts. Implement alternative and formative assessments.
