At the core, an instructional coach and teacher leader is someone whose role is to work with teachers and school leaders to improve the educational outcomes of their students.
Simply Instructional Coaching is based on the experiences of Nicole S. Turner. She has served as Lead Teacher, Differentiated Accountability Coach, District & Building Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal, Dean of Students and a School Improvement and Turnaround Specialist for the Indiana Department of Education. Nicole has hosted internationally reached webinars, trained coaches in districts and one-on-one. In all of these roles she has been asked hundreds of questions from coaches who are looking to make an impact with teachers. She has gathered the top questions asked and given explicit answers and even some ‘How to” steps.
