Instructional Coaches & Summer Administrative Staff

Instructional Coaches

The experienced teachers who serve as Breakthrough instructional coaches provide training, coaching, and support to our teaching fellows—outstanding undergraduate students who teach in Breakthrough classrooms during the summer. Instructional coaches bring experience, knowledge, a passion for preparing the next generation of teachers, and a commitment to equity and excellence. Instructional coaches receive intensive training and materials to support teaching fellows while they implement Breakthrough-specific teaching strategies and curricula. Coaches help teaching fellows differentiate lessons, engage students, and assess student work. Our coaches work closely with one another and Breakthrough directors to ensure all teaching fellows receive the support they need to be effective in the classroom.
