100Kin10 Project Team: Supporting Holistic Frameworks for Mentoring Teacher Leaders (2019)


This Project Team's goal was to develop recommendations for how to improve and formalize holistic coaching for teacher leaders. Their members include National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY), High Tech High, DoDEA, Boyd County Public Schools, and New Teacher Center.

Many coaching frameworks for teacher leaders focus solely on instructional support, and ignore other aspects of their role, such as building positive school culture and work environments. Led by NNSTOY, this Project Team examined existing frameworks and developed 8 publicly available coaching and reflection tools to support teacher leaders to take on, manage, and balance responsibilities both in and out of the classroom.

These tools include:

A coaching conversation tool, developed to assist educators in conversations that support reflection on multiple areas of practice and leadership. The tool may be used in a variety of ways by adapting the reflection column to fit the needs or goals of the conversation either independently or collaboratively with a peer or coach.

A self-assessment tool for each of the 7 domains of the Teacher Leader Model Standards, with resource links to support further leadership development.

Domain 1: Fostering a Collaborative Culture to Support Educator Development and Student Learning

Domain 2: Accessing and Using Research to Improve Practice and Student Learning

Domain 3: Promoting Professional Learning for Continuous Improvement

Domain 4: Facilitating Improvements in Instruction and Student Learning

Domain 5: Promoting the Use of Assessments and Data for School and District Improvement

Domain 6:  Improving Outreach and Collaboration with Families and Community

Domain 7: Advocating for Student Learning and the Profession
