Taking Coaching Online

In my previous post, I described the implementation of the coaching program at our school and how we created a Coaching Menu infographic with a list of our offering options. We had previously created a presentation to roll it out as a team of coaches and coordinators.

We included our beliefs:

And more…

These worked perfectly for the rollout, but we soon realized that teachers forgot the presentation, at least for Middle School, and didn’t have a place to share our Coaching Menu. We use Google Classroom for communication purposes. It has worked very well, but constantly adding information to it will send notifications directly to teachers’ inboxes which may overwhelm teachers and dilute admin messages in the stream.

That is why one of my colleagues shared the idea of building a Coaches’ website. I created it by adding some of the presentation information and our previously created Coaching Menu, bios, testimonials, resources, and more. This website will eventually be rolled-out and serve as a repository of our resources, keeping it under our consolidated suite of Google Workspace products.

Here the link to the website, and below some images of how it is looking right now.

Looking forward to deploying this website, and I will be back with more information on the results!

  1. Hi Luis,

    You are really developing a great model of coaching at your school. Your graphics are helpful for teachers to see what it is that you offer as a coach. It is also helpful to see the differences in the types of services you offer as a coach as well.

    At times teachers can be intimidated by working with a coach. The way that you have put together everything gives everyone a clear idea of what you can do to enhance the learning experience. Your information is user-friendly and easy to understand. I can see that you are ready and willing to help in any capacity possible. I am sure teachers feel supported by the services you offer.

    I am planning to apply for an Ed Tech coaching position at my school next year. I know this would be a great opportunity for me and I plan on applying. I know I have a lot to learn; especially, from people like you who are already doing great work. I will be looking for inspiration from your resources if I move into this position next year.

    I am also really looking forward to the blog post that you mentioned in our Google Meetup the other day!

  2. Hi, Andrea,

    Thank you for this comment. I agree that coaching can be intimidating, and the first step for the coach should be to build trustable relationships with teachers.

    What a great opportunity you have; you will make a great Tech Coach for sure!

    Reach out if you need help, and I’ll try my best to help you out.
    I just published the post I mentioned at our meet.
