Coaching for Change
Our Inaugural School Coaching Conference

Post
May 25 – 26, 2022
Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center
Atlanta, Georgia

The demand for school leadership and instructional coaches in schools, districts and states has never been higher, but until now, professional development for these educational MVPs has been hard to find.

That’s why the Southern Regional Education Board is launching the nation’s only professional learning event designed exclusively for coaches like you, no matter what grade level, content area or improvement need you serve.

“Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching and the greatest things can happen.” — Pete Carroll, head coach, Seattle Seahawks

Join us this May for two days of game-changing keynote presentations, breakout sessions and networking. Share your experiences and gain powerful strategies for enhancing the impact of your coaching. With support from our featured guest speakers and SREB’s school leadership and instructional coaches and staff, attendees will explore how to:

  • Build Strong Teams: Establish a shared vision and team culture in which educators learn and grow together.
  • Plan for Success: Structure your day, week, month, semester and year for maximum impact on teachers’ needs.
  • Trust the Process: Gain proven processes, protocols and tools to guide school or district improvement.
  • Overcome Adversity: Harness setbacks as opportunities for learning and growth.
  • Sustain Change: Empower educators to shift their mindsets and practices in ways that foster student success.
