ANet is a nonprofit dedicated to the premise that every child in America deserves an excellent education and the opportunities it provides. We pursue our vision of educational equality in America by helping schools boost student learning with great teaching that is grounded in standards, informed by data, and built on the successful practices of educators around the country.

Everyone needs a coach

 

At ANet, we believe deeply in the power of coaching. Our coaches get to know partner schools well. They form strong relationships with leadership teams and help them become the instructional leaders they aspire to be.

Here’s a collection of coaching-related lessons we’ve learned from our partners.

 
 

3 steps to productive coaching observations

Most of Isaac Castelaz’s professional development work doesn’t happen in a packed conference room or a post-observation debrief. It happens before he ever sets foot in a classroom to observe a lesson when he sits down to study and internalize the lesson himself.

 

Developmental coaching: Small steps toward big goals

With all the time, energy, and money devoted to teacher development these days, school leaders—and everybody concerned about education—want to be sure it’s actually paying off in the form of improved teaching and learning.

 

A powerful observation process you can adopt

I'm a big believer that anyone, anywhere, can achieve this level of instruction if they focus again and again on observing for the sake of development, not evaluation.

 

Our partners rave about our coaches and their support.

The work of building great schools can’t be done alone. When we make it possible for everyone to contribute their best, great things happen for students.

We’ve collected lessons we’ve learned from our partners, along with tools and resources to implement these practices, in our Lessons from the Field.
