Need a little extra support? Try coaching.

 

Special education teacher coaching provides 1:1 support from a licensed special education teacher in the areas of due process, academic strategies and behavior systems. Sessions are scheduled by the teacher through an online scheduling system with the option to select the coach or expertise you need most. 15-minute, 30-minute, 45-minute and 60-minute sessions are available with times ranging from early morning to late evening. By the end of a session, teachers will feel valued, like an expert, and know they are not alone in their work.

These 15-minute sessions pair you with a coach who specializes in the area you have questions in. Teachers use these sessions to double check their goals are measurable, confirm their understanding of an evaluation, and know they're on the right track!

"I jot down all of my questions as they come up during the week and I really look forward to my coaching sessions because I know I'm going to get my answer...It is a breath of fresh air where I can get grounded again and think deeper about what it is I'm trying to do here."
