Being an educator today requires sooooooo much!

If you are in an instructional coaching role or a classroom teaching role, your day to day can change quite a bit!

Showing up every day is what you do, being organized and getting things done, is how you inspire to be!

Me too! 

And if you are looking to become an educator who makes an impact, you are in the right place!

Welcome to Simply Coaching & Teaching!

Hey, I’m Nicole! I help coaches and teachers make an impact by providing the simple “How To’s” through workshops, books, and digital resources for getting started, building rigor, and creating conceptual understanding in the classroom. I am happy you are here!

I have a deep passion for helping teachers. I’ve spent the last 15 years in the field of education and have held several roles.  I have taught grades Kinder, 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 5th/6th reading only, and High School Special Education.  

In addition, I have served as Lead Teacher, Differentiated Accountability Coach, Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal, Dean of Students, and a School Improvement and Turnaround Specialist for the Indiana Department of Education.  

My current and favorite role is serving teachers and students in the capacity of an Instructional Coach and I was a member of the 1st cohort of Opportunity Culture Multiple Classroom Leaders (Public Impact) for the State of Indiana for grades 7-12. 

After serving in these different capacities, I was able to work with teachers to grow from good to great and that’s why I started Simply Coaching & Teaching.

In my online store, you will find creative and engaging resources for Instructional Coaches as well as classrooms grades 3-8 and LOTS of center activities for high student engagement.  

My goal for this website and blog is to provide you with materials you need to save you time, knowledge of strategies to implement in your classroom and ways to Make An Impact. 

Check out Simply Coaching and Teaching Academy, you will find online courses that will empower you as an instructional coach, teacher, or administrator.  

A Few Things…

I have been blessed to travel this journey of life with three of the funniest, inspiring, encouraging, compassionate, hard-working, and entertaining people I know. My wonderful children. Josh, a college student, Krissy, a high school student, and Justin, a middle schooler. They give me life and stretch me beyond all measures. 

Fall is my favorite season of the year and I enjoy watching football with my family on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday Evening. Where I don’t have a favorite team I love just watching the game.  When I am not being my children’s personal uber driver,  I enjoy reading, shopping, and binge-watching TV shows.
