There’s a whole lotta change going on in my world, especially in the work world. I’m in my fourth year as an instructional coach and wow, things are evolving. I think back to who I was a few years ago and I am amazed by some of the transformations – my thinking, my beliefs, what I know to be true…
Shocker, but my focus this year is on actually coaching my teachers a considerable amount of time. That’s not to say I’m the expert, but rather experiencing what they are experiencing and rolling with it.
My boyfriend is a high school coach =
gone a lot busy. Many times when I see him, it’s on the field/court. One game I had a revelation. He gives feedback to kids immediately. He encourages them. He is their advocate. He is right there with them. He takes the plan and modifies based on his current situation. I might have been told a few times that I overthink (see the genius post) things…so obviously this made me think of my job.
His instant feedback CHANGES his players’ actions. RIGHT THEN. Why am I not coaching teachers like players? They are playing the most important game ever.
I’ve been reading up on the Hattie factors and BAM. IT ALL GOES TOGETHER! ALL THE THINGS. I felt like the crazy holograph picture just 3Ded and materialized.
Coaches can help us coach.
