Teacher Development

Welcome to Summit Academy Instructional Coaching
Our instructional coaching program connects teachers and provides resources that will directly impact classroom teaching and student learning. Early career teachers are more likely to succeed with support from an experienced teacher. Likewise, veteran teachers can continue to grow with a colleague who can offer different perspectives and approaches.
Summit Academy's coaching team works with new and experienced teachers through conferencing, modeling, observing, and providing feedback - all focused on improving student learning.

Teachers also benefit from working with their grade-level and content teams in professional learning communities (PLCs).  Teams support student growth through data-driven decision-making and collaboration on lesson planning, classroom procedures, assessments, and seeking out and implementing feedback.
