Hi! 👋 I am getting ready to interview for instructional coaching positions with curriculum companies. Do you have any suggested reading that would be good background knowledge?


Our teachers will be returning to our school building as usual (about 10 days before school starts) whether school is virtual or face to face, so our school is wanting to plan a traditional welcome ba… more


Hello Everyone, I have been teaching middle grades math for 8 years(have experience in 6th-8th, teacher leadership, and ed leadership certificate). My district posted an elementary academic coach posi… more


My home district is considering grading for quarter 4. Is anyone else following this path? I am concerned how can a district grade when they do not support live teaching and the inequity of tech.?


My wife has been told by her boss to come up with 28 hours of PD for her district's paraprofessionals-does anyone know of any free online courses that would be appropriate?


Does anybody have a form that they love to document different ways you support your teachers? I want to take better notes on what I do with each of my teachers but I haven’t found a system I love yet


Love this engaged feedback checklist from Brené Brown!

Many of the teachers I work with have great relationships with their co-teacher, but one team is really struggling. What can I do to help them get along?


How do you collect data on classrooms?

Suggestions for difficult to reach teachers? It’s our 3rd year together, and we have a great relationship, but this teacher struggles with receiving feedback and wanting to reflect.

What is one tool you wish you would’ve had your first year teaching?

Does anyone use models of coaching aside from an expert model? (One where there’s an expert/coach observing the teacher and providing feedback)?

Do you have “coaching agreements” between teachers and coaches? What kind of information goes into that document? 📝


Let’s help each other out by building a coaching toolbox. 👩🏻‍🏫🛠 Drop your favorite/most helpful coaching resources here. I’ll share mine too. Excited to learn from all of you!


Hey Coaches! I’m Alyssa, and I’m one of the Community Leaders here at Fishbowl. I’ve been in the classroom for 10 years and a classroom coach for 6 (mainly elementary/Pre-K). Excited to be here!


Any advice for a new instructional coach? I just accepted the job and am trying to get a head start over the summer!

Any coaches here heading to ISTE19? If so, what are you most looking forward to?

How do you keep teachers engaged in learning and improving teacher practice at the end of the school year? I find this time of the year to be the slowest and my least favorite, as a coach.

That was just a preview…
