Coaching the Coach: Instructional Coaches Academy
Instructional Coaches professional responsibility is to bring evidence-based practices into classrooms by collaborating with teachers to get a clear picture of current reality/analyzing, identifying goals, assisting with teaching strategies to meet the goals, monitoring progress, and problem solving until the goals are met.
