Instructional Coaching Programs and Services

Our Instructional Coaching Programs & Services build teacher capacity to exceed student achievement goals. Our work is based in the Cognitive Coaching philosophy of guiding personal insights into an educator's thinking processes to foster their independence in learning.

Our research-based programs and services are built as partnerships with your team. We  use open, honest, and transparent communication to create  safe learning environments. Our approach is never evaluative in nature, but one of compassion and collaboration.

The ICPS team partners with teachers, teacher leaders, and/or campus coaches to increase classroom awareness, pedagogy, and implementation of professional development. We're ready to help you with the latest, innovative, and most relevant solution.
