Hi, my name is Karen Shutt. I am the Instructional Coach here at Edmondson Elementary and at Ivy Stockwell Elementary in Berthoud. This is my third year at Edmondson Elementary. I have worked in the school district for more than 20 years. Before becoming an Instructional Coach, I taught Kindergarten, 2nd Grade and 3rd Grade at Ivy Stockwell Elementary.My Contact Information:Phone 613-6335Email firstname.lastname@example.orgWhat is an Instructional Coach?The purpose of an Instructional Coach is to positively impact student achievement and our school through support, training, coaching, and mentoring, which builds school and teacher capacity to increase classroom achievement. I work with teachers to improve their teaching. That does not mean that I have all the answers. It means I work together with teachers to plan lessons to meet the needs of their students. I work with teachers to use testing data to help them plan lessons that address the needs of their students. I also work with teachers to reflect on their teaching to help them become the best teacher they can be.
