Instructional Coaching Network (ICN)


Instructional Coaching Network at Region 13 Logo

Collaborate and learn from other coaches in the field! Give input and leave with ideas, tools, and contacts. Our meetings encourage sharing and are highly engaging. We strive to meet your needs and choose topics based on surveyed district participants.


LOOK WHO'S TALKING:

Each year, we host guest speakers who are experts in the world of Instructional Coaching. Each speaker conducts a two-day training designed with the coaches’ needs in mind. Previous speakers have included Steve Barkley and Elena Aguilar. Jim Knight will be joining us, too!  Although guest speakers are not included in the network package fees, network members will be able to register at a discounted rate.


TEXAS TEACHER EVALUATION AND SUPPORT SYSTEM:

Whether your district uses the T-TESS (https://teachfortexas.org/) instrument or one which is district developed, we can support your needs. Three of the four T-TESS Domains are based on instructional components, so our coaches are trained in T-TESS to better serve you. Through the network, we guide and support coaches and instructional leaders by providing information and resources, collaborating, and modeling scenarios. Gain insight into communication and goal setting to support teachers at all levels of development. We also align our topics and training around:

  • Planning
  • Instruction
  • Learning Environment
  • Professional Practices and Responsibilities

Our network sessions support all districts in best instructional practices.
