As I go into a new month, I am still excited about my role as an instructional coach. In September, I was selected to participate in the North Carolina Digital Leaders Coaching Network (#NCDLCN) sponsored by Friday Institute. As a member of the 2017-18 NCDLCN cohort, I have the opportunity to grow as a professional and share with my colleagues at Lake Rim Elementary. The areas of focus are leadership and culture, effective coaching and advocacy, instructional improvement and being a connected educator. All these areas are critical for instructional coaches to be effective leaders.
I am still working with teachers to create personalized and digital learning opportunities for students. Recently, I modeled for a few kindergarten teachers how to create a #flipgrid for retelling which is a critical skill for kinders. The students were amazed to see and hear themselves talk. Take a look at the FlipGrid. I shared the #flipgrid with the rest of the staff and several teachers commented: “if kindergartners can do this, my students can too.” This is why I love my job!!!
