Coaching Institute with Katherine Casey

In my work with the Center for Educational Leadership at the University of Washington, I am privileged to coordinate the Promise of Coaching Institute, which is presented by nationally-acclaimed coach Katherine Casey, author of Literacy Coaching: The Essentials (Heinemann, 2006).

Portland: January 29-30, 2009

This two-day interactive session is designed to deepen literacy coaches’ understanding about what coaches need to know and be able to do and how to set up coaching work for success. The Institute is open to practitioners from all grade levels.

While not all authors of literacy books are great speakers, Katherine is exceptional!  She is a practitioner at heart, and incorporates videos of her own coaching throughout her sessions.  This is an event you won’t want to miss!
