An instuctional coach is someone who collaborates with teachers in order to meet classroom goals and help students reach their full academic potential.
HCPS Instructional Coaches use the Partnership Approach by Jim Knight.
Teachers and the instructional coach are able to work closely in four major areas: Classroom Management, Planning and Content Knowledge, Instruction, and Assessment.
Teachers set a goal or choose an area in which they want to partner and the instructional coach is there as a support to help implement and problem solve along the way.
