What do colleagues say?

"Student-Focused Coaching is an invaluable guide and has directly impacted our collaboration with teachers nationwide. This practical model emphasizes the importance of maximizing teacher knowledge and efficacy and engages educators in collaborative problem-solving to prevent future challenges. In gathering feedback, we've learned that teachers and coaches are applying the student-focused approach to goal setting and instruction within their classroom setting. They also love the opportunity to learn with and from their colleagues. Thank you for providing such clear guidance on the many layers of effective coaching!"

"Practicing and reflecting upon the principles in Student-Focused Coaching allowed me to engage with fellow educators and leaders and practice coaching conversations that were open, relied on evidence, and led us to collective inquiry into improvement. Implementing the ideas from Student-Focused Coaching allowed me to participate in cooperative and collaborative coaching conversations that empowered teachers to uncover and embrace student needs and engage in efforts to maximize the skills and knowledge to improve student learning.  The "Student-Focused" instructional coaching model has had a significant impact on professional collaboration and improvement to student learning outcomes."

"Daryl is especially valuable to work with because he understands the joys and challenges of every level of education: classroom teacher, principal, coach, administrator, service provider, and community member. People who understand the complexities of the classroom, as well as the systems that support teaching and learning, are rare, but Daryl really does have the full picture. His knowledge and experience, coupled with his strong communication skills and positive problem-solver stance, make him a wonderful partner to work with and a valuable addition to education leadership teams."
