Coaching Menu Boards
As I start my 35th year in education, I am ready to get back into my blogging.
I know this is going to be a challenging one for teachers. I am trying to re-imagine coaching to support them even more than ever before. Because I work at so many buildings (4) it is hard to set up coaching cycles, but we are really looking at this as an option this year and trying to think outside the proverbial box.
To help me address needs more effectively this year, I am playing with the idea of a COACHING MENU BOARD. This would let teachers know how coaching could help them more specifically. It gives them an easy way to consider options and reach out and the easier I can make it, the more likely they will utilize the supports.
Here is my first attempt/draft. I know I will be revising it because I am a tweaker and I will need to run this by my admin, but I’m feeling inspired by the possibilities.
And we all need a little inspiration moving into this school year.

I love this, Paula! It has a great range of options that give all teachers an entry point they are comfortable with…and it looks pretty, too!
Thanks, Stephanie. I was torn between a sketchnote style menu and digital. Went with the digital so teachers could sign up in one place!
Paula, I love reading your blogs! Four of the coaches in our district have been using coaching menus with great success for a couple of years.
Oh, that is encouraging to hear, Kelly. I hope it will help teachers feel more supported. Hope you have a great year!
Paula, Thanks for the inspiration. It’s time to help teachers rethink coaching with a menu! I’m in!
I absolutely love this idea Paula! I love learning from others so the more I can observe you/observe others, the better I will be. Thank you for sharing this.
