Teacher Coaching: Side-by-side Support for Success
JBHM Education Group believes that most teachers are creative and want to make a difference in the lives of their students. When student achievement lags, teachers who lack support in making improvements often leave the profession out of frustration.
JBHM Education Group specialists work one-on-one with classroom teachers to plan and provide instruction that incorporates the practices that are proven to help students succeed. By keeping the focus on the needs of students and engaging teachers in discussion of solutions, teacher coaches earn the respect and confidence of their classroom partners.
Teachers begin to understand how even their best intentions can contribute to a culture of low expectations. They see how specific classroom management techniques pay off. Once they realize that teacher coaches are there to model and support professional growth that benefits students (not to find fault and file reports behind their backs), teachers view coaches as resources instead of threats. They welcome their coaches as partners who will help them truly make a difference for their students.
