Meet our team of 130+ expert coaches providing personalized support for teachers, leaders, and coaches as they implement research-based practices that drive positive student outcomes.
Coaches help educators identify goals and implement research-based instructional strategies.

Educators can track their progress in the BL Lab while accessing thousands of proven instructional strategies.
Educators implement instructional strategies and work to master skills to create a more student-centered practice.
Our coaches are high-performing, veteran educators with expertise in adult learning across diverse backgrounds. Many of our current coaches are state Teachers of the Year, have pioneered new programs or curricula at their schools, led technology initiatives, or provided instructional coaching to teams of teachers. We recruit coaches with the following skill sets in order to create meaningful learning experiences for educators:
On average, our coaches have over 9 years of experience in the classroom and use that experience to guide learning in others.
Our coaches have a deep knowledge of learning standards and practices as well as experience coaching across several content areas or grade levels.
Our coaches have experience utilizing technology to enhance and improve teaching and learning. They have a strong virtual presence, bringing a welcoming, safe space for exploration.
Our coaches readily embody the values on which our coaching process is based: failing forward, self reflection, and taking a “learner stance.”
After vigorous training, all of our coaches continue to participate in ongoing professional development to reflect on successes, challenges, and new strategies to help their teachers succeed in the classroom. We create opportunities for goal-directed ongoing development and peer support for all our coaches across the school year.
Coaches engage in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) throughout the course of the year. The PLCs focus on topics such as mindsets, content, and virtual coaching.
Coaches have the opportunity to deepen their content knowledge by taking self-paced mastery-based certification courses.
Coaches receive continuous professional development focused on both content expertise and coaching skills to review and reflect on both their virtual presence and subject matter content.
