My take-aways from this module are to make sure that the coach and teacher have an identified plan that is put into place by teacher input. Having good communication between teacher and coach will help to make sure that goals are met.

My plan is to continue to familiarize myself with CTE content standards. Where I am very knowledgeable about teaching and instructional strategies, I also need to allow my teachers to be empowered to share their content knowledge, and I need to educate myself on exactly what they are teaching.

I think the big take-away that I had from this section was to provide feedback by first asking a question. I like how that first question allows the person you are giving feedback to say "yes" or "no," and it gives them the opportunity to know that the feedback is coming. I think it is also valuable to remember to focus on the data and specific, and not what can be blurred and taken in other ways. At the end of the day, the goal is always on student instruction and how to have the students as engaged as possible… >>>

In my position as a teacher leader, I think the most important thing is to make the feedback and relate it back to a teacher's individual/professional goals. As a leader, I must understand that I am increasing a teacher's capacity to do his or her job, and I can also learn from him or her. I also thinking that making sure feedback is prescriptive with intentionality and continuosly revisited, and when the goal is met, a new goal is to be met.

One that successfully bridges community need with student growth

We definitely haven't employed a yearly calendar in our planning & will start doing so immediately. 

The sooner students are involved in positive community changes, the better the community. So important to infuse youthful perspectives in building what our communities look like

While we always seek to gain more industry partners, I do think it would be great to add some non-profits to the list, as well as seek to weave ourselves into the thread of Rotary. 

Continue to add more members, which will in turn translate into more student opportunities.  Bring pictures of past events and results to the meetings so industry partners can see what is going on.  Maybe even have a quarterly newsletter where updates are sent out.

I think any community involvement is a benefit to students, and we try to do this in many ways.  A new way I would like to explore is the idea of having our core curriculum teachers participate in a summer internship at a local business to have the opportunity to see how their class content connects to the workplace and incorporate that knowledge/application when teaching the content to students.
