What Teachers Are Saying
"EdConnective added immense value to my teaching practice and ultimately to my students. While watching yourself on video can seem daunting at first, it has allowed me and my EdConnective coach to reflect on areas where I am doing well in the classroom and where I can improve. Many times in education, it might feel like people are always telling you to simply 'work harder' or that 'you're teaching this wrong.' The best part is feedback at EdConnective is not judgmental or vague, rather it is an accurate statement of facts of what occurred in the video of my classroom with actionable steps and advice on how to improve. My coach is a brilliant educator with over 11 years of experience in education. Her advice truly changed my teaching for the better, which of course means my students are improving and learning more as well. And that is what education is all about."
"Beginning teachers often spend more time planning and perfecting a lesson than we do reflecting on our execution of them. With the help of my instructional coach I was able to balance the two to become a more effective teacher in the classroom. Once I began to implement my coach's feedback, I saw an improvement in students academically and behaviorally. Seeing the results of my coach's feedback was powerful. It made teaching even more rewarding than it already is.
