Centre for Teaching, Learning & Research

Instructional Coaching Program

    • Instructional Coaches observe and provide coaching to teachers with 4+ years’ experience.

Greenwood’s instructional coaches provide both formal and informal mentoring to their colleagues.
In addition to many years of exemplary teaching, each instructional coach has demonstrated a student-centered, technology-enabled approach to learning, as well as the ability to challenge and support students to venture further both academically and personally.

Our instructional coaches:

  • Lead all aspects of student learning for their assigned courses
  • Observe and provide coaching to teachers with 4+ years’ experience
  • Collaborate as a member of the Greenwood Centre in the design and delivery of professional development
  • Research and model highly effective teaching practices that support Greenwood’s approach to education through personalization, particularly as it applies to co-teaching and use of our learning community rooms
Sustaining teacher growth is a key outcome of the Centre for Research, Teaching and Learning. We believe that all teachers can attain the distinction of expert teacher; our Instructional Coaching program is just one way we help them get there.
"I love sharing ideas and helping teachers to improve their practice."

We acknowledge with gratitude the Ancestral lands upon which our main campus is situated. These lands are the Ancestral territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabek and the Wendake. The shared responsibility of this land is honoured in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty and as settlers, we strive to care for the land, the waters, and all creatures in the spirit of peace. We are responsible for respecting and supporting the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. When away from this campus we vow to be respectful to the land by protecting and honouring it. We will create relationships with the people and the land we may visit by understanding the territories we enter and the nations who inhabit them.
