From our Guiding Statements:


Why should I consider being coached?

There have been many studies on the impact of instructional coaching on student learning. Research shows that teachers who embark on a journey as coachee both improve their teaching practice and benefits the students they teach. 

“.. instructional coaching had a greater impact on instruction than almost all school-based interventions including student incentives, teacher pre-service training, merit-based pay, general professional development, data-driven instruction, and extended learning time. In fact, they determined the quality of teachers’ instruction improves by as much or even more than the difference in effectiveness between a new teacher and one with five to 10 years of experience. Similarly, student performance improved with instructional coaching regardless of whether a teacher was a novice or veteran.” (Source)

Whether you are a teacher of 2 or 20+ years, having a coach can improve your practice and improve student learning. You grow, your students grow. So why wouldn’t you try it?!

When students enter the ES Makerspace at lunch times, they know that they are free to pursue their own individualized pathways. They have time to tinker, make, and engineer. Time to explore things they are interested in. Learn new skills and apply them in a variety of ways. We embrace a constructivist approach to learning, giving students opportunities to embrace a maker mindset. Constructionism advocates student-centered, discovery learning where students use what they already know, to acquire more knowledge.
