Boot Camp

Coach Missions

  • Carol (Central) is working on connections with teachers at the level she was not involved with in the past.
  • Deena (GreenCastle) is working on developing new professional development initiatives after doing SMART training last year.
  • Barbara (Gettysburg) is working on spreading knowledge around her district. She is thrilled that things seem to be looking up.
  • Kristen (Spring Grove) makes sense to put a community in SAS to keep technology in the forefront with standards.

Communities in SAS - PLC's - there is one for instructional coaching - all types of coaches. Get in the group!
