On-site or Virtual Coaching

Coaching for leaders and teachers is critical. When leaders and teachers work with a coach, they are able to refine their practices and try-out new learning. The impact that coaching has on any change is significant! The FIRST Education Math Center Team includes trained coaches who are skilled at supporting teachers and leaders in setting short-term goals and designing coaching supports to assist in meeting those goals. We believe in coaching that is responsive to the needs of the school and educator.
