Virtual Literacy Coaching
Technology has widened the possibilities for professional learning.
Professional learning is no longer bounded by geography or structure. Regardless of time and location, the virtual connections we make can forge strong professional bonds, empower our learning and provide feelings of connectedness to our profession.
Digital tools connect educators together, cultivate a personal learning network, facilitate collaborative lesson planning and intentional reflection, provide access to literature and research to build knowledge and showcase teaching and learning efforts. Put simply, technology has the potential to strengthen teacher expertise and build competence and confidence to ultimately impact students.
Which form of virtual literacy coaching is best for you?
I offer three virtual coaching formats to best support teachers' professional learning goals. Each partnership is unique and personalized to empower your learning:
- Virtual Coaching Conversations: Are you looking for a collaborative partnership to think through literacy instruction in your classroom? Together, we will chart a path to personalized coaching based on your interests, professional goals and contexts for teaching: virtual meetings, emailed inspiration, connections on social media and more. Choose from a one-time launch session or more sustained sessions together.
- Virtual Coaching Cycles: Are you looking for a literacy coach to support your classroom teaching? We will engage in an intentional coaching cycle right within your classroom through video observation, highly personalized feedback and coaching conversations to bring the learning directly to your classroom. Each cycle lasts approximately six-week and includes access Sibme, a private coaching platform.
- Coaching the Coach: Are you a literacy coach looking for ways to boost your own learning? Let's collaborate to build our own coaching practices, from creating professional learning communities and professional learning experiences to cultivating our classroom coaching skills and more. Choose from a one-time launch session or more sustained sessions overtime. You can even choose to join a coaching cohort to learn across the year with other coaches and create coaching resources.
