One of my favorite aspects of my job as an Instructional Coach is partnering with teachers and together working toward a goal. This has been going well, but I wanted to see more peer coaching occurring. After doing some research, I came across the idea of Peer Observation Partnerships. I adapted the information so it would fit my building, and ran the idea by my principal. Together, we decided that teachers would complete a minimum of one POP visit each trimester. Additionally, three "POP Share-Out Sessions" have been scheduled, during which teachers will meet as a whole group and share out their POP stories, moments of magic, and areas of focus for next time.
I look forward to seeing how the POP teams work this year, and it is definitely something I would hope to implement once I'm in an administrative role.
