My name is Kimberly Wilder.  I am an instructional coach at West Manor Elementary School. As an instructional coach, I support teachers in analyzing and using data to improve instruction, implement the and provide direction with the district’s initiatives, conduct professional development on targeted topics, develop coaching plans for teachers to ensure student improvement, assist teachers with resources, materials, and tools to enhance classroom instruction.  I also have the task of modeling lessons and conducting non-evaluative observations to provide feedback for a teacher’s professional growth and student success. Through the facilitation of weekly professional learning community meetings, I assist the teachers with developing differentiated lessons and assessments that are in alignment with the state standards and the International Baccalaureate Signature Program using the Atlanta Public Schools’ curriculum that will meet the needs of all students.  It is my belief that all students can learn and be successful.  We must reach them by teaching them on their academic level one day at a time.
