Instructional Coaching Summer Series & Giveaway

It's time for my favorite annual event at Buzzing with Ms. B. The Summer Coaching Series & Giveaway!

Here's the why: 
When coaches are hired, they are often teachers who have demonstrated a lot of strength in the classroom. But when they're moved to a coaching position, they're often left to figure out how to work with adults on their own.

If you've been coaching for any length of time at all, it's clear: kids and teachers are two very different animals. The way we worked with kids isn't always the way to work with teachers.

The challenge is that there isn't always a lot of support or professional development for coaches.

That's why this Summer Coaching Series is all about how to support teachers in order to support students.

You'll walk away with specific ideas and steps to take to make your coaching work better and help you coach with confidence!

And here's the what:

  1. I love your resources!! Thank you for sharing.

  2. I'm so excited for this! Thanks for sharing your expertise with the rest of us in the trenches. :)

  3. I love this ! I’m in my third year of coaching and I’m just feel like I’m finally “getting it”. I’ve been throwing into creating a curriculum for my school and I’m constantly overwhelmed but I love it. Soon I will move into administration and I want to always remember that my coaches need support too!!!

  4. You have so many great resources! I'm starting out as a coach this school year. I'm finding so many of your ideas helpful!

  5. I can't wait to read all of these posts! There are definitely not enough resources out there to support those who support teachers.

  6. I'm grateful to have found this blog to help with my first year as an instructional supervisor/coach. You are right that this is a lonely job, and your posts have made me feel just a bit better about where I am!

  7. I am most excited about the Aug 10th session. There is always one! LOL

  8. Hi Chrissy,

    I recently was hired for a new position in my district. I will work to support math coaches throughout my district with coaching, planning with teams, and data. I have enjoyed reading your blog and look forward to future posts! Thanks for sharing!
