Free E-Book: How to Create a Coaching Program That Works
"I love how this e-book captures the essence of instructional coaching and it's impacts on students and staff. This is a quick start guide that eases you into a coach approach."
-Paul Ivey, Instructional Coach
Supporting teachers to stay in the profession and contribute to student achievement offers a significant return on investment for communities, the workforce, and young people.
Why are teachers leaving the profession at alarming rates?
The hard truth is that new teachers who don’t receive mentoring and other supports leave at more than twice the rate of those who are supported. Veteran teachers are also leaving the profession at alarming rates. This turnover contributes to our national teacher shortage, as roughly 60% of teachers hired every year are replacing those who left the classroom before retirement.

- Increases student achievement
