Coaching with Powerful Interactions           

During this three day workshop, participants will explore ways to use a Powerful Interactions coaching stance to foster Powerful Interactions among adults that in turn lead to Powerful Interactions between teachers, children, and families. When coaches interact in ways that allow teachers to feel supported and appreciated, they are more open to change and growth.

A Powerful Interactions coach:

  • Observes for and highlights teachers’ competence
  • Uses observations and articulation to promote intentionality
  • Values individualizing to develop trusting relationships
  • Promotes a mutual learning partnership
  • Supports teachers by modeling what to say and do and how

This training will be led by Jonathan Fribley. Jonathan supports the growth of early educators and young children as a consultant, coach, mentor and trainer. His work addresses adult-child interactions and relationships, early language and literacy, assessment and children’s thinking.
