About Alissa
Alissa is an advocate for educators everywhere! As a 16+ year veteran, she has been exposed to numerous instructional strategies, district and campus initiatives, and professional learning opportunities. Through her experiences, she has recognized what has a lasting impact and who truly benefits. Alissa believes in the power of growing teacher and student efficacy. She has spent the last eight years of her career coaching teachers, administrators, and district leaders so that both teachers and students harness their power and abilities. Her approach to coaching is simple: it is a collaboration, not a one-and-done experience. Alissa works alongside leaders, teachers, and stakeholders to analyze areas for growth, establish clear and attainable goals, facilitate learning, track student and teacher development, and pivot when necessary. Change occurs from the top down, so she meets with leaders to ensure goal understanding and support before coaching teachers and professional learning communities. Her coaching style is collaborative, and to make the most impact, everyone involved must have a clear picture of coaching.
