I am presently on cloud nine! I have managed to connect with two teachers who want assistance. What I was surprised about was that they like my approach--not authoritarian or critical. I pull from them what they hope to do and than ask what I could do to assist them in accomplishing their task. This includes everything from finding supplies and websites to co-planning to team-teaching. Tomorrow I will finish a complete coaching cycle with one teacher so I will be planning my first post-observation dialogue for Wednesday. I am trying to treat each teacher as a peer/colleague s/he is so I offer my spin only if asked. So far, so good:)
I have two more teachers to see for pre-planning this week--one in science and one in English. I hope it goes as well as the other meeting has gone so far!
Again, please offer other strategies if you have the time.
