What if you could approach your coaching role with CONFIDENCE?

Get ready to elevate your coaching with a STEP-BY-STEP Guide for SUCCESS

This course will be an absolute GAME-CHANGER if you answer YES to either of these questions:

  • Are you an instructional coach who transitioned from the role of a classroom teacher without formal training for the job?

  • Do you find yourself navigating the challenges of coaching with limited guidance and support?


Most instructional coaches face these exact struggles as they step into a new role without the necessary support, knowledge, and resources to excel.

It's frustrating to lack the training and resources needed to effectively support teachers, build relationships with administrators, and master the intricacies of coaching cycles.

Alyson Dowda

Instructional Coach

Hi, educator friends! My name is Alyson Dowda and I've been an instructional coach at a high school since 2015. Before that, I taught elementary school for 11 years. I am genuinely passionate about using my experiences to improve teacher coaching and student learning!

I am a NERD for all things education-related and am always reading, learning, and implementing best practices for the classroom. Along the way, I've picked up some helpful nuggets for teachers, coaches, and administrators that I LOVE sharing!
