K-5 Instructional Coach
As an instructional coach, I provide guidance and assistance to teachers in the form of professional development workshops, grade level meetings, classroom observations, model lessons, and more.
Another of my main functions is to help teachers at my school transition to the Common Core State Standards, by both providing professional development workshops as well as assisting with both unit and lesson planning in all subject areas (reading, writing, math, social studies, and science).
I also lead regular data meetings with grade level teams to analyze unit and interim data, guiding them in strategic planning around increasing student achievement.
In addition, I will be working to provide mentoring, support, and orientation workshops to newly hired teachers.
All of this work takes place in an urban setting, with over 85 percent of students receiving free and reduced lunch.
