After 12 years in the classroom, Cori has transitioned to a coaching role where she helps empower educators to successfully use technology in their classrooms. Cori believes the technology enhances the lessons and doesn't replace strong educators and pedagogy.
One of the most important things for an educational coach is remaining organized so that things don't fall through the cracks. You may only have 5 to 10 minutes per teacher depending on schedules. Learn how to make the most of the time by organizing your materials, your schedule and your communications.
