Shakopee Coaching Program

  • Engaging Educators in Purposeful Conversations

    What is coaching? One-on-one, professional, data- and goal-driven conversations designed to shift thinking. Conversations are non-judgmental and confidential. The purpose of coaching is to develop and build our own internal resources so we become self-directed and reflective professionals.
    Why participate? Research indicates that coaching...
    • Increases teacher effectiveness
    • Increases collaboration
    • Positively impacts job satisfaction
    • Supports a professional school culture
    Coaches attend at least two weeks of training and continue to practice their skills throughout the year.
    While coaching is one component of the Shakopee Induction Program, the opportunity is open to all employees in the district.
