There are four tenets for building a coaching culture: all teachers deserve coaching; every teacher should have a growth plan and growth necessitates feedback; the stronger a teacher becomes the more coaching they should receive; and teacher leaders are the first to request coaching as they work to build the culture. A focus from school administrators and teacher leadership on these four tenets can create a vision and understanding of coaching that increases teacher openness and vulnerability to seek the rewards of coaching for themselves and their students. Steve Barkley will discuss the four tenets for building a coaching culture and ways in which continuous collaborative improvement occurs through the combination of PLCs and coaching supports.

For the past 30 years, Steve Barkley has served as an education consultant to school districts, teacher organizations, state departments of education, and colleges and universities nationally and internationally, facilitating the changes necessary for them to reach students and successfully prepare them for the 21st century.
