Building Mathematics Leadership: Coaching

Ready to make a real difference in the teaching and learning of mathematics? Do you realize that coaching is recognized as one of the most powerful ways to impact teacher growth and student learning?

If your district/school has a coaching program or is thinking about starting a coaching program; join NCSM and their coaching leaders for the NCSM Summer Leadership Academy in Colorado near the Denver Airport - July 30 to August 1, 2018.

Explore the themes and imperatives necessary for an effective Coaching program and to be an effective coach. You will receive tools and guidance in assessing where you are in your coaching journey and in the development of professional growth plans for you and/or your teams.
