One of the requests that came through loud and clear on the MsHouser Annual Reader Survey, was to hear more “stories from the field.” Or an opportunity to learn from the experiences of real coaches doing the real work of coaching, day in and day out.
I’m right there with you, and I want to learn more too!
So I was so, super excited to kick off this new “Interview with a Coach” addition to the MsHouser blog, with an interview with Natalie Chustz.
Natalie is a second year instructional coach in a private school setting. Natalie is so easy going, friendly, and a total learner and we had such a fun time chatting. She really spent time to prepare for this interview, in an effort that the info she shared could “help a coach out there somewhere” – Natalie’s words :)
Here are some specific take-aways from our conversation:
- How Natalie transitioned into instructional coaching
- How Natalie works with her Director (during a time of transition)
- Why it’s always important to continue to see yourself as a teacher
- The importance of building relationships early on and how Natalie does it
- How Natalie uses social media to connect with other coaches
Have any thoughts in response to this coaching convo? Let us know in the comments below.
And if you have any follow-up questions for Natalie or would like to connect with her further, here’s where you can find her:
