Instructional Facilitator Program
Courtney Williams, Supervisor
The Instructional Facilitator Program in Loudoun County Public Schools supports teachers and teams in all elementary, middle, and high schools to enhance teacher practice and student learning. Our program model is based on the instructional coaching research of Joellen Killion, Jim Knight, and other coaching experts.
Jim Knight (2016), defines the purpose as, "Instructional coaches partner with teachers to analyze current reality, set goals, identify and explain teaching strategies to hit goals, and provide support until the goals are met."
The Instructional Facilitators use the knowledge they have gained in professional development throughout the year. Specifically, they use skills learned in the following professional development: Adaptive Schools Seminars, Cognitive Coaching Seminars®, and Fierce Conversations®.
