Industry Reviews

"Sweeney and Mausbach explore the necessary ingredients to a successful instructional coach partnership between the principal and the coaches...This is a must read for building leadership teams implementing an instructional coach program"

-- Timothy S. Grieves, Ph. D., Chief Administrator, Northwest Area Education Agency, Sioux City
"Leading Student-Centered Coaching is an extremely beneficial resource that any administrator and coach should have on hand so they can effectively reinforce the ultimate outcome for school - kids learning. The tips and ideas are simple to pull from the book at any time and to authentically enact by both school leaders and coaches in order to promote effective student learning. If we frame coaching as being inclusive, or for all teachers, then we build on the belief that coaching is about partnering to meet the needs of each and every student."

-- Amanda Brueggeman, Literacy Coach, Wentzville School District

"This book synthesized the work necessary of school leaders when working with the coach... As a principal who was a student centered coach, this book has shown me how I can tweak the skills I learned and apply them with a leadership lens...My leadership team is studying teacher collective efficacy and this book has helped me see how we can align the coaching work, my work as the leader together to build that efficacy!"

-- Kelly Neylon, Principal, Meadowview School, Woodridge District 68
