Work with September: Coaching


Practice-Based Coaching for Teachers

Practice-Based Coaching for teachers provides coaching with fidelity to the Practice-Based Coaching model using a distance format. Using a two-week cycle, September supports each teacher in writing action plans, observes implementation of practices via video, and engages the teacher in reflection and feedback following each observation.

If any of the following apply to you, this might be your perfect PBC solution:

  • You want to implement Practice-Based Coaching but aren’t ready to hire an internal coach.

  • You are ready to hire a coach but can’t find anyone who is qualified.

  • You have a staff of just one or a few teachers.

  • You want your staff to receive coaching from a nationally recognized expert.

Practice-Based Coaching for Coaches

Do you wonder if you are doing PBC “right?” Feel frustrated when it comes to working with challenging teachers? Struggling to see changes in classrooms as a result of coaching? Or maybe you are just stuck - your program has committed to PBC and you’ve attended PBC Coach training, but you’re not sure how to get started, so it never seems to happen.

Coaches need professional development, too! Working with September allows coaches to experience a parallel process - they are coached using the same coaching model that they use with practitioners. September supports each coach in writing action plans, observes coaching meetings via video, and engages the coach in reflection and feedback following each observation.

You always help me feel so much more prepared and I learn so much in that one hour with you!! Thank you so much for everything you do!! I want to be like you when I grow up, lol!!
— Rachel P.

Coaching Community of Practice

The Coaching Community of Practice is an opportunity for coaches to come together on a regular basis for ongoing professional development and support. This is a place to share celebrations and struggles, and to get input and insight from other coaches. September's role as your facilitator is to foster conversation, answer questions about Practice-Based Coaching, and gently guide the whole group to keep fidelity to the PBC model. Each community of practice is limited to 12 coaches and meets monthly.

I keep bragging to our team about how lucky I am to have you as my coach!! I feel so much more confident about rolling this out.

This training is available for groups ranging in size from 2-40. September can come to your site or connect you with other agencies that are hosting this training.

The presenter was very thorough and her passion for the PBC process was illuminated through her delivery of the principles of Practice-Based Coaching. We had great interactions, role playing and networking opportunities.
