Tech Coach Tip of the Week
- No Tech Coach can be everywhere at every moment of the day. Many Tech Coaches are also full time teachers but are still responsible for working with other teachers in their building. For this reason, it’s imperative that Tech Coaches create systems to help them stay focused on what tasks they are being asked to do and do often.
