The educator effectiveness model provides growth opportunities for teachers, principals and other valued staff in our school districts today. This model requires principals, supervisors, and coaches to be highly effective at providing feedback.  

Whether your school has instructional coaches or you’re trying to build teacher leadership capacity, all staff desire and deserve coaching and feedback aligned to high expectations, standards, and research-based effective instructional practices. In this professional learning opportunity,  participants will further develop the capacity to provide coaching and feedback for reflection.
