In this episode, we’re excited to bring back two of our past educator guests for a discussion about supporting teachers through instructional coaching. We spoke with Jess Michalchuk back in Episode 169 on the topic of Building Math Moment Makers and we spoke with Lana Steiner in Episode 143 on How To Effectively Capture Observations and Conversations; two very highly regarded episodes!
Today we get insight from both Jess and Lana on best practices on building trust, empathy, and positive mindsets when educators and coaches collaborate together to Make Math Moments with their students everyday.
Tips for how to be the guide instead of grabbing the wheel in a coaching relationship; How empathy is a necessary skill not only for teachers, but for coaches;Why having the right coaching intentions in mind is necessary for a productive mentor/mentee relationship; and, What you might consider if you’ve been hesitant to reach out to an instructional coach in your district.
