About the Event
Coaching with myTeachstone is an online professional development platform that allows participants access to modules, videos and resources related to high quality interactions as measured by the CLASS tool. Two different versions of Coaching with myTeachstone will be offered this year. In this series, participants will attend a one-time virtual orientation on Oct. 3 from 6:30-8:00 pm. Registration deadline is Sept. 30.
This is the 100% self-paced version of Coaching with myTeachstone and one-on-one coaching will not be provided during this series.
A limited number of spaces will be available for our Enhanced Coaching with myTeachstone Model. Participants registered for the Enhanced Coaching with myTeachstone series will participate in the online professional development but will also receive some one-on-one in person or virtual coaching from a Virginia Quality Specialist. If you are interested in the Enhanced series, please contact Navine Fortune at firstname.lastname@example.org. Orientation for the Enhanced coaching will be held on October 5th from 6:30-8:30
Enhanced timeline: October 10, 2022 to January 13, 2023
After orientation, all coursework will be completed wherever and whenever it works best for you. Participants will be provided a recommended timeline, but there will not be any penalty for completing recommended assignments at a later date. If you successfully complete all assignments by the end of the course (January 13, 2023) participants will receive a certificate for 5 professional development hours.
By participating in this professional development series, educators will be able to deepen their understanding of educators-child interactions as measured by the CLASS tool in a flexible format that is available whenever is it convenient for you!
Educators will participate in a series of online professional development modules through the Coaching with myTeachstone® platform. The series will provide an overview of the Pre-K CLASS tool, video examples of each indicator and will provide you with the opportunity to connect with other pre-k professionals to develop creative solutions as you work to refine educator-child interactions in your classroom.
All of the assignments will be assigned at the beginning of the course. We encourage you to follow the recommended course pacing but understand that educators need professional development solutions that are available when it works best for you! So, as long as your course shows that you have completed each of the assignments by January 13, 2023, you will still receive a certificate of completion. In addition to participating in each of the assigned modules, it is expected that you will stay active in the comments section that is available underneath each module. It is recommended that you respond to the reflection question shown in the comments section for each module.
A CLASS® specialist will be available to support you through this professional development series by monitoring your progress and participating in the chat and is available for additional support via email. You can access further support by setting up a time to meet for a phone or Zoom session.
Professional Development Hours
All assigned modules are due by January 13, 2023. To receive a certificate for 5 professional development hours, all of the assignments must show as completed in your Teachstone® account by midnight on January 3, 2023.
