Buzzing with Ms. B: The Coaching Podcast Ep. 1: Show Notes

Every teacher deserves a coach...and every instructional coach does, too! Buzzing with Ms. B: The Coaching Podcast is just for you, coaches. Weekly episodes of real talk about my best tips, how-tos, and strategies for making an impact on teaching and learning at your school (even with those resistant teachers)! As a literacy coach and instructional coach, share ideas that are practical and easy to implement, perfect for the busy instructional coach who's trying to figure out their role, get organized, manage relationships and so many responsibilities, and communicate with teachers and administration at the same time. Check it out and change your coaching trajectory!A while back, I sent out a survey to two thousand instructional coaches. I wanted to know how they felt about their jobs.

And do you know what they said? Three words kept popping up, over and over:
 
Overwhelmed.
Frustrated.
Lonely.

That’s awful! Nobody wants to feel that way at work! But I totally get why it happens.

We’re frustrated when teachers don’t want our support, even after we try all of the tips from the coaching books we’ve read.

We’re overwhelmed by 8,000 responsibilities that have nothing to do with the actual work of coaching.

And we’re lonely because we’re not teachers and we’re not administrators.

We’re in the middle, which is sort of the worst place to be.

They say every teacher deserves a coach. But I’m here to tell you that every coach deserves one, too! You deserve the support you need to do your job.

So that’s what I’m doing.

Every week starting February 1, 2020, I’m going to share practical ideas and honest talk about instructional coaching. I’m going to speak from experience and get to the nitty gritty of what to do and what to say. We’re going to talk to guests who have made things work for them and for their teachers.

It’s going to help you feel confident in your coaching work, give you the tools you need to manage your millions of responsibilities, and help you connect with other coaches, even if you’re the only coach on your campus.

Because you can read all of the coaching books and follow all of the coaching advice, but if they’re not talking about the real work coaches have to do at real schools, it’s going to leave you feeling even more stressed out than before.

I can’t wait to help you change the trajectory of your instructional coaching! Tune in to the first episode of Buzzing with Ms. B: the Coaching Podcast today and become part of the Buzzing about Coaching community!

This first episode is a short one. It talks all about my path to coaching...and why I cried nonstop for one entire summer. I am ready to share with you all about how I became a coach (when I wasn't even planning on leaving the classroom yet), and how it changed my teaching career.
