Index

"A must-read for any administrator who employs coaches on their campus and for anyone who acts as a coach, teacher leader, facilitator, or mentor."

Candace Bixler, Educational Specialist
Education Service Center, Region XIII, Austin, TX

"It is imperative that districts make meaningful choices about the coaching model they invest their money and time in implementing. Without a broad base of knowledge, it is unlikely that coaching can have the greatest impact upon the teachers and students who need it the most."

Tiffany Wiencken, Instructional Coach Facilitator
Beaverton School District, OR

"The book provides a useful overview of the different ways the concept of coaching applies to one common theme: the goal of improving student learning."

Dennis Wilson, Superintendent
