Instructional Leadership Coaches provided for us a new way of looking at data.  They possess a wealth of knowledge in all content areas and helped me to understand teaching and learning.  Our teachers were thankful for the support of the Teaching and Learning Coaches as well.  They now feel more confident with instruction and are dedicated to using research based strategies with our students.  We are no longer on the state priority list.
