FC: Friends Who Have Never Met

1: Here I am with two of my closest friends: Kathy Perret (@kathyperret) and Jessica Johnson (@principalj). We speak almost every day, but we have never actually met.

3: One day Kathy had an idea to start a chat on the topic of instructional coaching. I was grappling with an ambitious plan to raise the quality of learning at our school. Teachers were struggling. So was I as the principal. I thought instructional coaches might be a way to provide the support we needed. "Sign me up," I declared. Jessica was also enthusiastic.

4: Educoach was born!

5: Now we chat weekly with instructional coaches, principals, and teachers.

7: We have even chatted with some of our mentors: Jim Knight Steve Barkley Todd Whitaker and Diane Sweeney

9: We celebrate our successes each week and help each other stay focused on the positive. I still have my hard days, but now I have a community of strangers who have become friends to help me through.
