Academic Coaches

The goal of coaching in the Gilmer County Charter School System is to support teachers as they improve their content knowledge and understanding of what is effective instruction and how children learn.  In order to maximize the effectiveness of this initiative, coaches will work directly with teachers in the classroom, analyze teachers’ needs, collaborate on interventions, provide professional development and build a network for change resulting in improving student achievement.
