Tomorrow's Teaching, Today

Today’s students must be prepared for a future that we can barely imagine. To make the leap, education must change, and teachers are on the front lines of this shift.

We work with educators and instructional leaders to encourage growth, risk-taking, and reflection in their own practice, so that they can, in turn, use high-impact instructional strategies to develop the next generation of resourceful, compassionate, and resilient learners ready to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

Testimonials

Through participating with BetterLesson Coaching over the past three years, I have grown so much as an educator in ways that I never thought possible. This took teaching to new levels and PD was targeted specifically to areas that I needed, wanted to work on.

Sara Schonfeld
K-2 Teacher, Magen David Yeshivah, NY

One-on-one coaching is the best kind of professional development. Not only did my experience with Better Lesson help me adopt more blended learning practices in my classroom but it truly helped me become a better teacher. Through our conversations, I always felt comfortable asking my coach questions, advice, feedback without ever feeling judged. Teachers may worry that their administration may not think they are doing a good job if they present them with insecurities. Having a coach removes that pressure.

Renee Pervin
Grade 3-5 Teacher, Hebrew Academy of Montreal, Canada

My coach has been an invaluable source of support and encouragement for me in my first couple years of teaching. She has provided me with a wealth of strategies that have helped my students achieve higher outcomes, and helped me maintain my sanity as a new teacher.

Kim Ainsworth
Grades 3-5 Teacher, Weems Elementary School, Manassas City Public Schools, VA

It’s a great partnership and opportunity for teachers to get 1:1 support/coaching. I really appreciate the amount of time put into looping in principals to share what teachers are working on with school leaders and our central team.

Kristen Watkins
Director of Personalized Learning, Dallas ISD, TX

I believe BetterLesson Coaching provides a great professional learning opportunity to grow new staff and rekindle the fire of “seasoned” staff.

Rick Duncan
Superintendent, Powell County High School, MT

BetterLesson has been a great resource and support for new teachers and teachers changing assignments that provides more consistent development and feedback that what we can provide.
