“When teachers stop learning, so do students.”

In the AISB Future Plan, learning is at the heart of what we do for our students AND for ourselves.
Learning: To cultivate a community that understands learning and seeks to improve
  • Educators build the capacity, efficacy, and craftsmanship to facilitate and assess concept-based teaching and learning.
Capacity Building: To empower our learning community to develop their voice, agency, and leadership capacity
  • AISB has sustainable systems for professional learning, using coaching and mentoring as tools.
There are many ways we can choose to enhance our capacity as educators. One way to kick start your professional learning is to work with a coach by either embarking on a coaching cycle or simply having one or two coaching conversations.

Indeed, research has shown that instructional coaching has a greater impact on classroom instruction than many other forms of professional learning.
