The History of Coaching in Lake Villa:
In 2009 Lake Villa District #41 incorporated the use of instructional coaches to support teachers in the area of literacy. Then, a technology coach was hired to support teachers on effective ways to integrate technology into teachers' instructional practices. Currently, we have two instructional coaches in place to support teaching and learning in the classroom across curricular areas. Instructional coaches are specialists who focus on providing professional development for teachers by offering additional support needed to implement various curriculum, instructional programs, and practices. They provide essential leadership for the school's entire instructional program by helping create and supervise a long-term staff development process that supports both the development and implementation of the instructional programs over months and years.
Your instructional coaches are available to meet with you regarding new strategies you would like to implement, support with classroom strategies, observing students and much more.
