Master Coaches: A District-Wide Culture of Teacher Support to Improve Instructional Practices

Over an eleven year period, the National Educator Program (NEP) and Lake County Schools in Florida have worked together to create a culture and expectation of peer coaching for classroom teachers. This has required work with all segments of the school district, including teachers, administrators, and district personnel.

This culminated in 2012 with the launch of the ambitious Master Coaches program; an initiative where "every teacher has a coach and every teacher is a coach" district-wide. Participants will examine the structure and implementation process, as well as quantitative and anecdotal data from the latest implementation phases of this innovative project to support teachers, improve instructional practices and raise student achievement.
