"The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves."

Hello!  My name is Theresa Shutey, and I am an Instructional Coach here at RBMS.  I have taught for 20 years and am very excited to begin a new chapter of my career with you.  There are so many great changes happening here and I feel very fortunate to be a part of them!

Instructional coaches can have the greatest impact by participating in coaching cycles with teachers through observations and conferencing. Since I'm not an administrator in any sense, a coaching cycle is focused on supporting you in ways that only you request; nothing is ever evaluative and our work together can be as confidential as you would like. There is great benefit to having another pair of eyes observing the learning behaviors of your students to better inform your instructional decisions. From the beginning teacher seeking assistance with classroom management, to the veteran interested in a new way to teach vocabulary using technology, there is no area in which we can't learn together. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or requests for support: theresa.shutey@leanderisd.org or ext. #43356
