The exasperation shared by the first coach and the assurance provided by the second are true to my experience, as well, as an instructional coach. Coaching, similar to teaching, is not a profession that can be done by anyone and everyone. It is not an opportunity to ease the workload of a classroom teacher. The work of an instructional coach is complex and challenging, but I believe it is a critical component to push teachers and schools from being good to great. It is imperative for a coach and for a school invested in providing coaching to explore the question of how one can offer a consistent and thoughtful coaching model within the school context.
