Our Students Say...

"When I first began this course, I was a novice to the idea of coaching. I had a plethora of questions; everything from time management to what a full coaching cycle looked like in an elementary school. After completing this course I feel more comfortable in how I will manage my time, what my focus will be, and how to work with other teachers."
~ Emily Fenner, Warrenton, Virginia
