Meet Ms. Houser


Hi! I’m Kristin.

I have worked as an educator for 19 years, serving in a variety of roles during that time. I have taught multiple grade levels, served as my school’s Linguistically Diverse Education teacher leader, and most recently worked as an instructional coach for 9 years.

Providing coaching support within a building can be a very rewarding, but also challenging job.

The primary purpose of this blog is to help all coaches be successful in their work. I work to do this by sharing authentic and supportive content and resources.

I started this blog in 2010 when I first transitioned to my role as an instructional coach, and found myself “figuring things out” along the way. I shared what I was learning and what I was trying, with the hope that my blog would be the resource I wished I had when I first got started. 

Several years and multiple blog posts later, the blog has grown to a community of 34,000 readers. 

During this time, I also created The Time & ToDo Planner to support coaches and other busy educators with organizing and staying on top of their work.

I hope you’ll join our community!
