Your Lead Coach is an experienced NYC public school teacher at your Teaching Academy who manages school related logistical matters and works to ensure the success of the pre-service teachers placed at their school. Your Lead Coach may also be one of the individuals who conducts your formal observations over the course of your pre-service training.
Your Lead Coach exists as an escalation point and mediator for Partner Teachers and Coaches during training. If an issue arises between you and your Coach and you do not feel comfortable discussing the matter directly with your Coach, please reach out to your Lead Coach.
Partner Teachers who expect to be absent or late to field experience should notify both their Coach and Lead Coach.
