In order to close the achievement gap, I believe we need to support, coach, and develop our ADULTS- most importantly, our teachers.

Equity coaching is the only practice I have seen that addresses multiple domains that impact our work as educators.  Jamie was instrumental in helping us develop a coaching model that assists teachers as they examine and further develop their moral and emotional commitment to all students, while improving their relationship with students and their knowledge and use of instructional best practices.  As a result, our teachers trust their coaches and are adjusting their teaching methods in an attempt to meet their student’s needs.  They feel empowered and know they can change to help their students become more successful.
