248: Starting Strong

If you are a teacher leader – this is for you! It is important to support others to be successful faster. Many times, administration and instructional coaches want to support teachers, but don’t have a game plan ready or data from the previous year to best do that. In this episode you will hear about having an aligned mission and how to execute it. Tune in!


  • Supporting others to become successful faster, and longer.
  • How to create consistencies in an inconsistent year.
  • One of the fall backs to a lot of coaching support is that there is just no game plan.
  • Have an aligned vision with administration.
  • Haphazardly helping people might feel good in the moment but you never get momentum.

About the author, Gretchen

I am a teacher trainer and coach. Working elbow to elbow with teachers and teacher leaders to ensure instructional proficiency and student achievement soar lights me up. We have a real need in our nation for strong educators to remain in the field. My blog, book, podcast, courses and instructional materials are geared towards empowering teachers (and those that lead them) to receive the support needed to grow and thrive today, tomorrow and always.
