What we do
The Tech Coaches are charged with helping teachers integrate technology into their instruction to increase valuable learning opportunities for students. They support teachers by:
- designing and facilitating professional learning opportunities in-person, virtually and asynchronously
- consulting with teachers during their prep time
- co-teaching, co-planning, and modeling lessons
- co-chairing the district’s Technology Advisory Committee (TAC)
- sharing resources and ideas through email and on the Tech Coaches’ Blog
