It makes me wonder...Why is it that Instructional coaches are at many elementary sites but not secondary? As teachers are desiring scores above 3 on the Teacher/Leader Effectiveness, now would be the time to pilot a high school instructional coach! I know that many teachers would not take advantage of an instructional coach, but those who would, could make minor classroom changes that would have a positive impact on student first time taker's EOI scores.
This leads me to my developing passion! I have always desired to have observer preservice teachers and intern teachers in my classroom. I love to have the opportunity to guide them into a successful start of their career. I now have a strong desire to work with other teachers to improve/refine their skills in order to increase their effectiveness! I know that it sounds weird, but I am very excited at changing my priorities as teachers ask me questions about what they can try in their classroom.
