Training Leaders

Sposato currently coaches school leaders in Boston, Lawrence, and in New Orleans.  Through our work training instructional leaders, we have an impact on tens of thousands of students in high-poverty schools.

Boston and Lawrence: Sposato is partnering with UP Education to prepare Deans of Curriculum and Instruction to be effective instructional coaches.  UP Education runs in-district turnaround schools in both of these cities. The program involves an intensive summer institute and a full year of on-the-job support.

New Orleans: The New Orleans-based "Match Leadership Coaching" program currently involves fifteen schools.  The program includes intensive job shadowing and coaching provided by our NOLA team, and individualized, actionable feedback on how to improve classroom observation and teacher coaching skills. The program also fosters a professional community among these leaders and frames ongoing dialogue surrounding common challenges.
