‘How Can I Encourage Teachers To Use Me as a Resource?’

See on Scoop.itImproving Your Teaching Practice

Elena Aguilar, an experienced K-12 educator, is a transformational leadership coach in the Oakland, Calif., school district.

From the article: 

“As a coach, I want to pull teachers back to the place from which many of them entered teaching: a deep desire to support children’s academic, social, and emotional growth and cultivate life long learners. Once they reconnect with that desire, I help teachers think through how their classroom practices align to that vision–for example, are there any practices which aren’t leading towards this end? But I need to get permission to join them on this journey and I’ll only get that if teachers are driving their own learning.”

Yay!  We need you!
