Keynote Presentation

Coaching For Acceleration Through a Focus on People

The “catch-up” language around “learning loss” misses the real power of quality teaching and learning. What’s the impact on students who hear a teacher say, “We need to cram in lessons to catch-up on what was missed?”  What’s the impact on teachers who are hearing more about where students are, than where we wish to take them? Instructional coaches and school leaders can assist teachers in changing this language with a focus on people. Building educator and learner efficacy and agency is key. Knowing teachers and students we can personalize their success pathways.
