The Obstacle Course

“It’s part of life to have obstacles. It’s about overcoming obstacles; that’s the key to decisionshappiness.” -Herbie Hancock

The end of the school year is filled with excitement. We hold graduations, coordinate field trips, finish grades and paperwork, and plan for next year.  For many instructional coaches (and similar roles) it is also a time of obstacles and decisions.  Coaching obstacles range from teachers and students losing focus and motivation to worry about losing the coaching job itself.  So, this short post is about these obstacles and how we decide to overcome them.

The trick? I am not going to tell you how I overcome them. That’s too easy.  I want to hear from you.
