Our Students Say...

"When I first began this course, I was a novice to the idea of coaching. I had many questions, everything from time management to what a full coaching cycle looked like in an elementary school. 

After completing this course, I feel more comfortable in how I will manage my time, what my focus will be, and how to work with other teachers."
~ Emily Fenner, Warrenton, Virginia
