Hi! I'm Kim.
After working as a coach in international schools for over 15 years – in Germany, Malaysia, Thailand and Japan, I started Eduro Learning to support schools and coaches in building a thriving coaching culture.
I have been working with instructional coaches, and school leaders, in schools around the world since 2015.
Even though each school context is different, all of them have the same problem: a weak foundation for coaching, including a lack of consistency across schools, so the problem arises again when they move to a new school.
What often happens in international schools is schools hire coaches, usually because another school in the region did it first (or because they want to be the first in the region), without clear definitions, standards of practice or expectation for the role and the program.
After being hired, the coach grows increasingly frustrated over three to four years due to this lack of understanding of the role at all levels, combined with little to no PD for the coach, leading to a resignation. Then, the position is not rehired, because school leadership (who may have also transitioned during this period) don’t see the value in the position, and then the cycle repeats itself several years later.
Don’t let this happen at your school! I can help you build the foundations of a thriving and sustainable coaching culture – as an educator, a coach or a school leader!
