Lynne’s method of instructional coaching is to guide the teacher through self-observation and reflection in order to identify areas for improvement. Throughout the process Lynne created a safe, comfortable and supportive environment. Working through the observation and reflection with Lynne as my coach translated into immediate, practical changes that enhanced my performance in the classroom, and subsequently improved student learning. This was one of the most useful professional development experiences I have had in recent years and the results exceeded my expectations. Lynne is a knowledgeable, skillful coach and I highly recommend Lynne for her expertise in this practice and her thoughtfulness throughout the process.
