As the Instructional Coach for F.L. Stanton Elementary School, I am honored to work with a staff of exemplary educators as we collaborate to provide the highest quality instruction possible to our students. The F.L. Stanton teachers and support staff are extremely dedicated to making sure all of our students receive the best education possible through the use of best practices and research-based instructional strategies.
The Instructional Coach is a critical lever in improving student achievement and has a passion for teaching and learning. The role of the coach is to build teacher capacity and their understanding of instructional practices. An instructional coach is a learner who models continuous improvement, lifelong learning, and goes above and beyond to ensure student success. Instructional coaches will promote reflection, provide guidance and structure where needed, and focus on strengths, collaboration and common issues of concern. They are responsible for ensuring high-quality instruction in classrooms through modeling, co-planning, co-teaching and providing feedback to teachers.
