Coaching Tip of the Month

One of the online commentaries in Education Week, November 29, 2010, is entitled, “The Science of Teacher Development.”  In the article, the author echoes our PIIC motto… “Improving training and support for teachers is key to improving student learning.” As educators, we know that the point of impact for improved student learning is at the classroom level. Helping teachers refine their practices is the only way to improve the landscape of teaching and learning.

One of the ways that PIIC has provided appropriate “tools” for teachers is the ongoing statewide professional development offered four times a year. These “tools” are not just the materials and handouts gleaned from our learning opportunities. These “tools” are the networking opportunities that coaches experience when they collaborate with their colleagues. Those ongoing conversations, one at a time, create a culture of learning, caring, and sharing that accompany sustainable changes in schools.
