Instructional Coaching FAQs
All educators new to the Olathe Public Schools are assigned an instructional coach that works with you throughout your first year. Your instructional coach will focus on curriculum, instructional strategies, and classroom management support. Your coach is always available to assist you with any questions or concerns you have. As you move through the year, you and your coach will partner on coaching cycles which will help you focus on areas of growth to increase student achievement.
Instructional coaches are supervised by Dr. Ann Addison (elementary and SPED), Director of New Educator Induction and University Partnerships, and Kelly Tines (secondary), Director of Instructional Support. Ann and Kelly are located at the Instructional Resource Center.
Instructional Coaches can be found in the Learning Services Staff Directory. In the "Location" field drop-down choose "Instructional Coach" and click the search button. Click here to go to the Lsearning Services Directory.
