A coach is an empathetic, encouraging, and experienced teacher who can help you with activity recommendations, program structure, interacting with parents and staff, and more! First, you’ll identify goals for your classroom or teaching style. Together, you and the coach will discuss strategies to help you reach those goals. After implementing the new strategies, you’ll meet with the coach again for feedback.
