Educator Growth Reimagined

BetterLesson reimagines professional learning by personalizing support for educators, helping educators rethink and redesign their practice to support student-centered learning.

Evolving Challenges, Personalized Solutions

To take on the challenges of the future, our children must be taught to be collaborators, risk-takers, and fundamentally, problem solvers. Districts are at the forefront of this work, launching bold initiatives to innovate practice and pedagogy to meet students’ needs. But these initiatives rarely make it from the boardroom to the classroom.

BetterLesson Professional Learning bridges this divide by providing continuous, personalized support to teachers, instructional coaches, and school leaders. We partner with you, help create a roadmap for success, and walk you through from idea to implementation until you realize measurable impact for your students.

The BetterLesson Partnership Process

  1. Align & Design

    Together with our partners, we identify the priorities and most urgent goals of the school, district, or organization. Working together, we identify the educators who would most benefit from a personalized professional learning experience. We identify learning domains to align with your objectives and design a plan that meets your district’s needs and budget.

  2. Make the Perfect Match

    We match each educator with the coach that will best meet their instructional needs, experience, and style. As non-evaluative thought partners, our coaches provide the encouragement, expertise, and motivation needed to try new things, shift mindsets, and reflect on results, all in service of continuous learning.

  3. Catalyze and Sustain

    Together, BetterLesson coaches and educators use the BetterLesson Lab to access a curated and vetted library of actionable, research-based instructional strategies that align to the stated goals of each partner. Our “Try, Measure, Learn” methodology facilitates action, reflection, and growth. Each participating educator has access to the BetterLesson Lab, where evidence of each educator’s growth and practice are captured.

  4. Impact Reporting

    BetterLesson believes that personalized professional learning can improve educator practice and engage students in transformative ways. We know that our partners are depending on us to help their teachers make this leap. We’ve invested in the tools, people, and systems to ensure transparency and accountability to each of our partners so that we are all working together towards your strategic goals.

Testimonials

Although I already had 12 years of full time teaching experience prior to working with BetterLesson, coaching helped to remind me that discovering new tools and constantly refining your craft as an educator is a great way to reinspire and recommit yourself daily to the work you do with your students.

Charles Pearson
Grade 9-12 English Teacher, Lindsay High School, CA

BetterLesson Coaching has been a really transformational program that has supported me and challenged me in changing the way that I teach. The resources are boundless, and the support is as well.

Sean Lindsey
Teacher, Nations Ford Elementary School, NC

Discussions with my BetterLesson coach really taught me how to not only reflect upon my teaching at a much deeper level but also how to then further implement different lessons that would build upon those reflections. To have feedback and direction from a different perspective was such a powerful tool for me.

Dana Durado
7th Grade ELA/Social Studies Teacher, Diamond View Middle School, CA

[Two] of my teachers participating in the program were greatly impacted.  It saved one teacher’s job and it inspired the other teacher (she had one of the best years ever in her career).

 

Adam Bowen
Principal, New Buffalo School District, MI

Better Lesson supports teachers in a non-evaluative manner.  This allows teachers to take risks with instructional practices.  Better Lesson allows the teachers to have “voice and choice”. Teachers identify goals, revise goals, try strategies, evaluate outcomes, etc.

 

Bob McKeveney
Superintendent, Seneca Falls Central School District, NY

It helps me as a principal in a small charter school to have assistance as the instructional coach. It is very difficult to be the instructional leader, a coach, an observer, and evaluator all at the same time. I love that my staff can have outside coaches and I can support that with observations and then I can be the evaluator.
