• National Board Certified Coach

    The LAUSD National Board Certified Coach Program is devoted to providing National Board Certified Teachers within the District with a foundation in the research informing effective coaching practice and development of skills in applying the research to a variety of coaching situations.

    Our goal is to build a cadre of teachers who will have an impact on increasing student achievement through providing focused one-on-one and small group support for teachers using evidence-based strategies and the instructional coaching process.  At its core, instructional coaching involves the classroom teacher and the coach examining practical strategies for engaging students and improving their learning through identification and implementation of effective teaching skills.

    The emphasis of this series is on developing knowledge and skills that can be applied toward implementing effective coaching in a variety of different programs.
    NBC Teachers are eligible to attend only ONE series of Coaching Training per year.  Registration for classes is on MyPLN.
