Here’s a question that came to me recently: “I’m a coach of teachers who are experienced and doing well. How do I make sure that I’m a good coach for teachers who are already flourishing?”
Here’s my answer:
- Don’t stop the form of your coaching! Whether you’re using pre-conference, execution, or post-conference, each is as valuable for your advanced teachers as it is for your most struggling teachers
- Focus on the little things in the classroom. How is that teacher doing in working with English language learners? Or with moving benchmark kids to advance benchmark, or strategic kids to benchmark? Maybe help that teacher to pick a new task or skill they want to get better at, and then coach them to get better at those things!
What I find is that the successful teachers that I coach are always looking for ways to get better, and you can always help with that.
