Climate Coaches

Educators are continuously learning.  To be effective, they need the support of coaches to help them grow, just as they help their students grow. Climate coaches build capacity throughout the district, equip teachers to improve student achievement, and help encourage continuous improvement for students and faculty.

  • More than one-third of new teachers leave the profession in the first three years (Shaw &. Newton, 2014)
  • 68 percent of new teachers have expressed their preparation programs had placed too much emphasis on theory and not enough on classroom-ready skills. (William Penn Foundation, 2018
  • On average, it costs more than $20,000 to hire a new teacher in an urban school district. (Learning Policy Institute, 2017)
  • Nearly two-thirds of American teachers feel undervalued. (trustEd, 2018)

Bulloch County Schools' climate coaches support teachers as they assess where they are as educators, plan for how to grow their skills, and put effective practices in action to best benefit their students, their school, and their career as educators.
