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.
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.
