Instructional coaches support teachers through personalized professional development and job coaching. They work as a resource to support teachers as teacher leaders who serve to work alongside them. As critical levers in improving student achievement, instructional coaches build a teacher’s capacity and understanding of instructional practices related to various learning models, including Common Core.
Instructional coaches are models for continuous improvement and lifelong learning. They strive to go above and beyond to ensure teacher and student success and work collaboratively. Instructional coaches promote internal reflection, and provide guidance and structure where needed and emphasize strengths, collaboration, and common concerns. They are responsible for ensuring their schools’ nurture high-quality instruction in classrooms through modeling, co-planning, co-teaching, and teacher feedback. Instructional coaches need a degree in education and certification.
