Morris Hills High School Instructional Coaching


Lauren Sherburne and Tanya Stevenson

The Morris Hills Instructional Coaches are here to partner with teachers and staff. The mission of each coach is to provide on-going, job embedded professional development, real-time support in and out of the classroom, as well as confidential, non-evaluative conversations.

February iCoach Buzz

This month's focus is on self-care and ways to foster relationships in the classroom. Now more than ever, we need to make self-care a priority in order to continue moving forward through our days. If we don't take the time to make sure that we are staying well, taking care of others and educating our students becomes even more challenging. We have gathered some self-care resources for you. We will also be hosting Wellness Wednesdays where we will have grab and go items for your use.

You can also look forward to learning about a simple yet effective discussion tool called Parlay on February 17th at 1:00 p.m. Look out for the Zoom link that week. You will have the chance to test out Parlay and begin searching for available topics or create your own during this session. You will earn one hour for PD and this workshop will take the place of your office hour for the day.

As always, our door is always open for you. You may make an appointment with us, reach out via email, or stop down anytime.

Your iCoaches,

Lauren and Tanya

Pop Up PD - Parlay - Feb 17 1 pm

This month we will focus on ways to interact and engage with your students via Zoom. One tool we will be testing out is Parlay. This interactive online discussion board will allow you to facilitate discussions online or in a live seminar fashion. You will be able to provide students with materials, prompts for discussion and immediate feedback. Come by via Zoom or stop into 105. You should let your students know that you will not be holding office hours so you can attend. See you then!
