Event description
Build your vision of an impactful coaching cycle that builds teacher efficacy and leads to direct impacts on student learning.

About this Event


In the Coaching Collaborative, you’ll build your vision of an impactful coaching cycle made up of conversations that build teacher efficacy and lead to direct, immediate impact on student learning.

Together we will work side-by-side with teachers, through video and in classrooms, to build the coaching skills required to create change.


Students get increased access and opportunities for meaningful learning

Teachers increase efficacy, belief and actions to impact students’ learning in the moment

Coaches experience a robust virtual learning opportunity with transferrable virtual facilitation — you develop the skillset to enact a coaching cycle focused on building teacher efficacy and strengthening teacher practice

* Washington state educators can earn continuing education clock hours by participating in the Coaching Collaborative.

”As a result of engaging in professional learning for coaches, I am now able to approach coaching in a more refined and systematic way. Working through the steps of coaching has taken a lot of the guess-work out and has provided a linear approach to how I engage in the work with cooperating teachers. Working with other coaches, as well as Renee has allowed me to learn from others and their experiences. Through this work, I feel more equipped to really engage with teachers as they work to improve their practice and increase student engagement and success.”

- Elisa, WA coach

“As a result of engaging in professional learning for coaches I am able to make purposeful decisions about which coaching models to use and why that is a good fit. I am able to meet with teachers to determine a goal for coaching for both student and teacher learning. I am beginning to be able to identify when to jump in during side by side coaching and when to not jump in that will best serve the teachers goals. I have also learned the value of the debrief with teachers to move their learning forward.”

- Dana, Math Coach

Listen to Casey Harkleroad, instructional coach with the Kent School District, as she shares her experience of coaching teachers when schools closed due to the pandemic — and how she applied lessons learned from working with Renee to help teachers get better.
