Instructional Coaching - The CCESA provides job-embedded coaching to teachers and leaders to improve the quality of learning for all students. Through coaching, the CCESA provides focused support to help teachers and administrators reach the goals they have set for students through the enactment of research-based best practices in teaching and leading. The CCESA coaching model is undergirded by three principles: building teacher trust, using a growth mindset, and calibrating coaches. CCESA coaches are trained in several coaching models such as Marzano's, Cognitive Coaching, and the Danielson Framework for Teaching.
