Episode Thirteen: Coaching

I met Shannon Hobbs-Beckley at a conference in DC. I remember her talking about her passion for leading teachers, specifically in the realm of Coaching. As I began to understand a little bit more about her role at Graded American School, I was intrigued by the school's decision to hire Deeper Learning Coaches. This move was fascinating, and it shows a true commitment to effective teaching and learning. I am so excited that Shannon was able to join the podcast to share a little bit about her personal journey with Coaching and the journey that Graded is beginning this year with Deeper Learning.

Gregg Weltz has been a close friend for almost 8 years. Even though we are many miles apart and we don't see each other regularly, we still are able to connect and talk about our shared experiences as if they are still happening today. Gregg coached alongside me in Uganda, and he invested almost all of his time and energy into the school where his son was attending. Today's episode is to hear about his experiences and to try to see international schools through the lens of the parent.
