Adrienne Hoffer - Public School Funding
Adrienne Hoffer discusses her work as an Instructional Coach for Glenview School District #34. She explains the evolution of this position over five years, with the new focus being on literacy throughout the Prk-8 Elementary District (a Tier 3 level school district regarding school adequacy). Currently, it is felt that instructional coaches and full day kindergarten will make significant impacts upon student achievement. Other topics discussed include intervention plans for students, training of teachers using the writing model, duties of an instructional coach, types of coaches found in the district (bilingual, science, math, behavior interventionist, instructional), the student writing process, and Foundation Grant Funding which helps with professional growth for teachers.
