I’ve realized that there are so many parallels between coaching and teaching. This spring, I’m helping coach a high school girls soccer team, and it is tough! I have lots of questions and uncertainties and frustrations, which is very similar to my first year of teaching (and my second, and my third…).
This afternoon, I called my high school coach to ask a few questions, and we ended up talking for almost 2 hours. It’s amazing what fresh perspective can do for my outlook. New ideas and new possibilities emerge. I am excited for this next week!
And like I do for teaching, I also went on Amazon to purchase some coaching books she recommended. Professional development for coaching…now I can’t wait until Tuesday when the books arrive!
