Student-Centered Coaching for Schools, Districts, and Educational Organizations

Diane Sweeney Consulting supports the implementation of Student-Centered Coaching in K-12 schools. Student-Centered Coaching introduces a new way of delivering instructional coaching that puts the needs of students’ front-and-center. By focusing coaching on goals for student learning, rather than on fixing teachers, an instructional coach can directly impact instructional practice and student achievement.

“Student-Centered Coaching has arrived just in time for many districts across the country who are frustrated with lackluster results from the instructional coaching movement. She argues that for too long we’ve focused coaching efforts on teachers’ practices and hoped to see results in student achievement, rather than focusing on students from the get go. This book is a must for anyone who’s a coach or principal."

District Leader

“This was an example of the highest quality staff development. Having the time to process the text, the experience to ground it, and the exemplary facilitation forced my thinking to go much deeper."

Literacy Coach

“The information was presented in a meaningful way. All of the information was relevant. I will use it all! Diane’s organization, knowledge, and experience were invaluable. I gained lots of ideas to continue our quest to improve classroom instruction to benefit all students.”

Principal

“I wanted to thank you for your thoughtful, meaningful presentation at our coaching PD yesterday. I left feeling invigorated, and driven to apply my new learning. Today, as a coach, I felt successful as my work had a clear focus! I don't mean I have it all figured out. We are ALWAYS refining our craft as educators!”

The symposium made them come alive for me and I feel like I have some skills (hopefully) to fall back on to use in coaching cycles. Also as a team we have a common foundation to work from and further and better our program.”

Learning Coach

“This provided me with a very strong conceptual understanding of student-centered coaching (the framework), as well as some very concrete structures for implementing this structure.”
