This point in the summer, I am engulfing myself in hundreds of articles and books to help me in my new title. Instructional Coach. This wonderful book is my 2nd read. It’s a refresher read with new lenses. When I first read this book in my collaborative course, I never knew that one day soon I would have the title of an Instructional Coach. At that time I was a 5th grade teacher and my principal was looking to build capacity within the school. You never know where God will take you and what Professional Development/Training will be just what you need to move you to another level of your career. But that course is proving to be a blessing to me even more now in life. Thinking back, I am so grateful for all the Professional Development I’ve had. Truly. I know at the time when it’s being delivered…it can stink. All you can think about is what you have to do next…report cards, parent phone calls, grade papers, plan. Professional Development is just that…development of you as the professional. Now that I am looking through new lenses, I’m brainstorming of ways to make the Professional Learning feel beneficial real time rather than months later. I’m researching, learning, relearning and I’m now the sponge.

Hello fellow teachers and friends! This is my second time setting up a blog. Don't laugh!! I hope that I can keep it up! It is definitely something that I have been wanting to do for a long time. So here it goes! I’ve was in the classroom for 13th years as an elementary school teacher. It is amazing to think that! I can't believe that I have taught four years in first grade, seven years in second grade, and two years in fifth grade! The bulk of my teaching was in the state of Virginia and the rest in Georgia. My 13 years teaching have taught me a lot about authentic teaching, life long learning and the dreaded state testing all while adjusting to a higher grade level. I truly feel that those years upped my level teaching in ways that I never could have imagined! I am now an Instructional Coach! This blog will be my journey. Hopefully you will stick with me!
