Question Detail

I am a new instructional coach ( 4th week) in a school that has had a lot of changes this year. How can I show the teachers that I am there to support them? They are leery of having me come in to their classrooms.

      What about starting with individual teacher meetings that are semi-structured (come with some of your own ideas/agenda for beginning, then allow for open conversation--teacher led time)?

      Also, being authentic and acknowledging the changes in the school can go a long way towards building community/openness.
