Job-Embedded Coaching Support
The coach's roles is to support the inquiry and discovery of practices towards growth in teaching. Often times a job embedded coaching session utilizes a process called a BDA cycle. There will be a “Before” meeting to determine the focus on the data collection. The “During” which is typically a data collection/ observation of teaching, and an “After” meeting in which the data is discussed and unpacked. These sessions are confidential and driven by the participant, not the coach. Participants are invited to reflect on the experience with a focus on three questions: What did I look for? What did I learn? What’s next?
Job embedded coaching refers to the belief that professional development is most successful when it is personalized, teacher driven, part of the ongoing teaching and learning process. In the spirit of growth mindset, we believe that coaching should support each teacher's desire to grow professionally and personally.
