So how does a coach tackle the opening weeks of the school year? In this episode, we’ll be discussing with two coaches, one who is jumping into a new school district and one who is returning to their school district, to create a coaches checklist on the important tips one should have for the start of school.Follow Maegan on TwitterFollow Tracee on TwitterPodcast TeamHosts- Katie  Ritter & Justin ThomasEditing Team- Michael Roush, Justin Thomas Social Media/ Promo Team- Annamarie Rinehart, Lisa Kuhn, Maggie HarrisCreative/Content Team- Justin ThomasProducers- Justin ThomasEdge•U Badges Edge•U is an anytime, anywhere professional learning platform made for teachers by teachers!Coach Mentorship Program Year-long mentorship programs to support the ultimate PD provider: instructional coaches!

209 - Goal Setting to Get Results
Often, we know where we want to end up. We know that we want to lose weight, learn a new language, or pay off our debt. However, as time goes on we find ourselves engaging in the same routines with little progress to that ambitious “someday we’ll get there” goal. The same is true in coaching. Whether it is integrating technology effectively, mastering a new literacy program, or building a culture of innovation- we often start with the best of intentions and slip off the wagon sometime between 2nd & 3rd quarter. This episode explores a few strategic ways that instructional coaches can use targeted goal-setting to crush their personal coaching goals AND the larger goals of the school or district they support.

207 - Coaching Across the Generations
Coaches work with a very diverse set of educators.

This episode we're talking with Ben Sondgeroth to explore  how coaches can better understand the needs and values of each generation to build their capacity for effective technology integration.Links mentioned in the show:Forward Edge Coaches Camp Registration - RRPODCAST for $50 off.Follow Ben on TwitterPodcast TeamHosts- Katie  Ritter & Justin ThomasEditing Team- Megan Whitacre, Michael Roush, Mark Gumm,Social Media/ Promo Team- Annamarie Rinehart, Lisa Kuhn, Maggie HarrisCreative/Content Team- Brooke Conklin, Emily Cowan, Tracee KeoughProducers- Tyler Erwin & Katie RitterCoach Mentorship Program Year-long mentorship programs to support the ultimate PD provider: instructional coaches!
