Shifting 10 percent of the current professional development budget to EduCoach can improve teachers’ performance by as much as or more than the differences observed between a novice teacher and an experienced veteran.
EduCoach went ‘LIVE’ at midnight (AST) on Tuesday 20th July, and is now open to receive applications from educators who would welcome the opportunity to coach teachers locally and worldwide. This includes all persons who have expertise that can benefit teachers, whether they are currently working in education or not.
Although a global enterprise, Dr. Tucker is personally inviting the phenomenal educators in classrooms and leadership roles in public, private and home schools across the island to ‘Apply to be a Coach’ on EduCoach. Dr Tucker looks forward to receiving applications from her colleagues and the many Bermudian teachers she has coached over the years and is excited about their future success. She hopes they seize the opportunity to coach on this global stage.
Dr. Tucker is fully aware of the support needed by Bermudian teachers to implement various curricula, in particular, the Cambridge and UK curricula, and wants to let teachers know that they will find experienced coaches with expertise in these curricula on EduCoach.
One veteran P4 teacher of 20+ years, Ms Furbert said: “I am excited about the opportunity to be a coach on EduCoach because, after 20+ years of teaching classes of diverse students, I have truly mastered the ‘art of classroom management’. I cannot wait to help teachers get the best out of their students and to be able to maximize every
teaching moment of every day. I know the secret to effective classroom management, and through EduCoach I will be able to share my secret with all teachers who need help.”
Persons interested in being an EduCoach Coach should go to www.educoach.online using a desktop and click on APPLY TO BE A COACH. The first 100 successful applicants will be gifted with 75 percent OFF their Annual Membership Fee for two (2) years.
This offer ends July 31st 2021. Teachers, parents, and anyone needing help with instruction will be able to BOOK A COACH beginning mid-August 2021.
