The best part of being coached by Lynne is that her style focuses on expertly having you derive conclusions and goals for improvement based on your own observations of your teaching. From there, Lynne provides excellent resources and advice on how to improve in the areas that you identify. I found her methods incredibly fulfilling and effective, especially compared to a more traditional style of coaching where a mentor simply lectures you on what needs to be improved. Her intentionality and professionalism is unparalleled. I would recommend coaching with her to any teachers, both novice and veteran!
Lynne West’s workshop enabled me to completely transform my classroom. With her clear introductions, sound pedagogical reasoning, and built-in practice time for each digital resource, I left her workshop with a solid base of new materials as well as the confidence to continue creating them on my own. From “flipping my classroom” to creating an interactive website, and from deepening learning through social media to using online assessments, my classroom has truly been updated for 21st century learners.
