Instructional Coaching with the End in Mind viii

professional development, including Professional Learning Communities.

If you have had the pleasure of seeing Steve present, you know that he is a master teacher. Educators everywhere are better for having par-ticipated in one of Steve’s workshops. I am certainly better for the experience. Instructional Coaching with the End in Mind exemplifes Steve’s teaching by clearly describing strategies from which any coach can grow professionally and, in turn, augment and enhance his or her important work with teach-ers, administrators, and students.

I have benefted greatly from watching Steve present and by reading what he has written. It shouldn’t be a surprise that my copy of Steve’s earlier book is heavily annotated and well worn. I expect this new book will look just the same soon. And I expect your copy will too.

Thank you Steve—and Terri—for a deeper journey into the value, art, and practice of coach-ing in education.
