Professional Coaching Reflection

I have been a coach this year for another staff member and am learning a lot about the concept.  Here are my thoughts after a professional development day with Jan Robertson.

Purpose of Coaching
Primarily coaching is designed to improve learning achievement and outcomes for students.  It does this through inquiry into our own teaching practice and pedagogy’s.  The coaches role is to provide a time and space for the partner to verbalise what is happening for them in their practice and then ask reflective questions to deepen the reflection.  Goal setting is a good tool to use as well..
