    Secondary Instructional Coaching: 20

    Why Coaching?


    Yo-Yo Ma has a coach. Rafael Nadal has a coach. World-class surgeons have coaches. Derek Jeter has four coaches. Why? Because professionals who aim to become the best in their fields and who desire to stay on top must employ a system of continuous improvement. In the same way as your own voice sounds familiar to you from inside your head, your professional practice looks similar to you every time you see it. It is impossible, therefore, to underestimate the importance of the outside observer, someone who is as equally invested in your success as you are, but who is able to see your work, including possible areas for refinement, through a reflective, non-evaluative lens. As a model for professional development, instructional coaching builds trust with teachers and opens doors to school- and district-wide improvement.
