Lead From Inbetween:  Leadership Strategies for Instructional Coaches and Team Leads

As instructional coaches, department chairs, and team leaders we often find ourselves between two worlds - we are tasked with supporting our colleagues on the front lines while also existing in what feels like no man's land between district level and building administration. When educational change happens “to teachers”, coaches and team leaders can step in as figures of stability and positivity “for teachers”. In the 2-day workshop, the presenters will share their experiences as K-12 coaches and strategies we’ve learned to develop positive relationships and translate school/district initiatives to help achieve our primary objective - increasing student achievement and engagement.
