Consistency and Connection on the Internet–When looking for work (or clients), it is critical that all search engines present the same information to prospective clients and/or employers.
This means lots of going back and forth, checking out the latest updates, and, even worse, having to repeat the information yet again for some prospective employers who require their own applications.
Some of mine were out of date–last updated in 2003 (one), 2011 (a few). All (I hope) now reflect basically the same information. Job-Search-related email are all being sent to the same address (Joel@JoelMontgomery.net). I also steer everyone to my executive website, http://www.JoelMontgomery.net.
Now let’s see what shows up.
Why would teachers want a Teachers’ Coach?
I started coaching teachers in Miami, FL, in 1988 or so while I was finishing research for my doctoral dissertation at Florida International University.
More recently I have been involved with teaching in Illinois–six years as a bilingual (Spanish) teacher and five years as a substitute, focusing especially on the needs of elementary school teachers and students.
Teachers are being buried in new requirements–“Common Core,” improving student performance on standardized tests–new tests coming this year.
As part of my personal continuing education I was certified two years ago as a trainer in neurolinguistic programming (NLP). Some of what I learned in that training has direct application in helping teachers deal with the new challenges they are experiencing in their classrooms.
I’ve started a Teacher’s Coach Group on Facebook (bit.ly/t-coach)
