Question Detail

I am a K-5 coach that is split between two buildings. I tend to work with just a few teachers for an extended period of time. I would love any tips on how to build relationships with those teachers that I am not currently working with, but hope to as the year continues.

      Perhaps a PLC, book study group, or PD session. Those could bring new (to you) teachers in, and your conversations and focus could drive future work with them.

        The librarian and I have held short (30 minutes only) PD sessions with instructions that are explicit on how to use a piece of technology to engage students. We have had directions to hand out and examples of how to use it with students. I've tried to use this to build community and it has given me a way to get into classrooms who have not signed up for the coaching cycle. I've tried to really be as helpful as possible and give them things that they love and that are easy to implement.

          What about a shared online group of some kind to share ideas/post video clips, etc.? Maybe a Facebook like thing that is private to your school.
