June 4th Collaboration Coaching Meet and Greet

On June 4th, all new Collaboration Coaches, returning Collaboration Coaches, and Principals will meet, plan, and prepare for our 2012-2013 school year. We will revisit the goals set during March Collaboration Coach Training, create a presentation with the principals to define the school expectations of collaboration, explore the roles and structure of team meetings, and how it’s aligned with the Common Core implementation/transition as well as our district vision.

The purpose of this blog post is to introduce your 2012-2013 Collaboration Coaching Team by sharing:

  • Where and what you teach.
  • Your school’s goals for Collaboration Coaching.
  • Questions you still have about Collaboration Coaching.
  • We also want to make sure everyone knows how to comment on a post, and how to respond to other comments.
  • Please respond to at least one peer’s introduction by adding new information such as a specific complement, a resource, an idea, and/or a follow up question.

  1. I am excited for the rewarding opportunity to work with the Cactus Canyon Collaboration Coaches. I am looking forward to evaluating progress made and setting new goals focusing on effective collaboration within grade-level teams and across content areas. Also, to continue collaborating and training teachers for 21st century, student-centered classrooms. I would like to learn more about specific team roles to help facilitate efficient team meetings.

  3. Hello, fellow collabs!

    We are the PTES Bobcats and very excited to be collaborating with each other and those across the country! We are looking forward to becoming familiar and implementing the common core standards as we use our technology effectively. Our question would be the role of the collaboration coach and their responsibility in working with others. Are we responsible for finding teachers to work with or will we be assigned someone? Will this be a site decision or will it be a personal decision? Courtney’s comment about making our classrooms student-centered is perfect. The student is who will benefit from our collaboration.

  4. We are the Four Peaks Collaboration Coaches:
    Mindy Carney – Kindergarten
    Jamie Del Rosa – 1st grade
    Shauna Hammon – 3rd grade
    Bethany Sole – 3rd grade
    Shana Myers – 3rd grade
    Amber Moore – 3rd grade
    Marina Renzulli – 4th grade
    Katrina Holmquist – 6th grade
    Brenda Farris – Principal
    Our school’s goals are to build collaboration across the campus by focusing on the four C’s (collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity).
    We have no questions at the moment, but if anything arises we have ample amount of resources.

  5. The High School’s goal is to focus on good teaching practices. Incorporating cross curricular lessons which will increase rigor and establish relevance and student buy-in.

    • We agree that buy in is critical not only for student buy in, but teacher buy in because they are the ones that set the stage.

  6. Just an add-on to our comment…One of our goals will be placing an importance on collaborating with staff and making the commitment to meet. The commitment must be there for it to be successful. YAY!

  7. Our DVES team includes 6th grade teachers Tawnya Olen and Elisa Hansen, 4th grade teacher Krystal Holyoak, SPED teacher Bennett Roberts, Title – Shelly Brossman, 2nd grade teacher Chris Sorensen and Kindergarten teacher Danielle Houseman. We are a mixture of year one and year two coaches. Our goal is to continue and expand 21st century practices in the classroom. We wonder if we will have protected time to work with out team.

  8. We have 4 new coaches and 6 returning coaches at CCJH! Our new coaches are Gwen and Shannon teaching Language Arts and Lydia and Marla teaching math. Our returning coaches are Patty teaching Language Arts, Bethany teaching Science, Sheryl teaching Social Studies, Tina teaching math and J.D. teaching multiple electives. Our goal is to be more efficient and more effective during this transition year at CCJH! We would also like our peers to have a better understanding of our role as CC’s.

  9. We are excited to introduce the Collaboration Coching team from SMES. Together we represent Kindergarten with Susan Rabe and Bonnie Barrett, Summer Streeter is a mulit-age First/Second Grade Teacher, Denise Cook represents Second Grade, Laurie Gateb and Julie Pauken represent Third Grade, Brian Lockwood for Fifth Grade, Jayne Ewell from TITLE I and our Common Core Coach Robyn Gonzales. The team will continue to build unity within our school and throughout our grade level teams; as well as across to other grade level teams at Superstition Mountain and collaborating with teachers throughout the district.
    Some of the questions that we have are how to strengthen ourselves as Collaborative Coaches to inspire others so that collaboration is encouraged and becomes the school culture/norm? What kind of skills with technology do teachers need to have in place to bring their students into the 21st Century? Is collaboration coaching meant to strengthen the teachers or the students?
    We are looking forward to an exciting year….
