What is an instructional coach?

Literacy Coach- Gina Cole

Hello! I am excited to be on this amazing journey as an instructional coach within the Proctor Public Schools.  This is my 15th year in education, and my 3rd year as an instructional coach.  I am originally from the Duluth area, and live in the Lakeside neighborhood with my husband, 2 boys and one mischievous dog. I received my undergrad at UMD and my master's degree in education at St. Mary's University in Winona, MN.  Two years ago, I had the privilege of attending the Instructional Coaching Institute at the University of Kansas.  Along with all of my training, working with teachers on a daily basis is the best education I can receive.  Proctor is packed full of amazing teachers that put students at the center of their work.
