We’re happy to introduce a new video blog series for coaches: What You Need to Know If You’re New to the CLASS. During this series, we’ll introduce some coaching strategies that can be used if you’re new to the CLASS, are just curious, or if you’re a veteran CLASS user and just want a refresher. Enjoy!
We know that the interactions between teachers and children are critical in helping children learn and feel comfortable and confident in the classroom. These same interactions are important in other relationships you have like the relationships coaches have with teachers.
In this video, we talk about how you can use parallel process or include those interactions outlined in the CLASS tool in your coaching sessions and why that is important to building those relationships.
Tell us about your experiences! How do you use parallel process in your coaching sessions? How have you seen it work and what challenges have you had?

We are invested in making myTeachstone your one-stop-shop for continuous quality improvement (CQI). Most recently, we’ve made enhancements that will help you collect CLASS® observational data from your classrooms, receive reports that help you better understand your organization’s needs, and facilitate professional development that creates lasting impact.

With effective coaching structures and programs in place, organizations can drive quality improvements that support children's development and learning. And, with CLASS® and CLASS coaching certifications, organizations can focus their improvements on research-proven educator-child interactions.
It’s no secret that teacher burnout has become a massive issue in the education industry today.
