Instructional Specialist


The goal for instructional specialists is to coach and connect teachers to resources, support teachers with the implementation of effective instructional practices, co-teach and model teaching strategies, design and deliver professional development modules to schools based on needs, and help facilitate Profession‚Äčal Learning Communities.


At the heart of MPS’ observation process is the belief that quality feedback and reflection are required for professional growth and development. During observations, observers collect objective information about instruction and student learning and align this information to elements on the Standards of Effective Instruction rubric. After the observation, the teacher and observer participate in a post-conference where they discuss feedback and next steps.
