Research shows that in-classroom coaching is a powerful tool for impacting a teacher’s skill but few campus professionals claim expertise in social emotional learning. Coaching for Momentum is a multi-day learning session designed to address this gap.

Join our 6-part workshop series on Coaching for Momentum: A Social Emotional Approach to Classroom Coaching. We will work through five categories of awareness to enhance the coach-to-teacher relationship, learning how to deepen the reflective practice of teachers. Ultimately, participants will develop a strong social emotional lens to inform the process of coaching and build a network of collaboration for sustainability.

By learning to coach with an SEL lens, coaches, counselors, principals, assistant principals, school leaders, staff developers, mentors, department chairs and others become better equipped to get traction for momentous outcomes and inspire transformational change and increase their ability to provide strong sustainable support.
