Leadership, Coaching and Commitment

When it comes to coaching in PreK-12 education, a substantial amount of uncertainty is apparent on the topic of precisely what are best practices in coaching teachers.  Further , School Leadership and Coaching share certain components:  one is their identical need to first acquire and then maintain commitment from others.  Regardless of an individual’s leadership style, routines or rituals, he or she will not lead effectively without first establishing a compelling vision to which others want to commit.

When a teacher is committed, he or she is inevitably engaged in reflection on both the goal and the strategies being employed to reach it – on examining what works and doesn’t work in reaching students – and meeting their needs.
