Coaching Cultures

Aligning Ecosystems, Building Communities

An optimal learning environment in classrooms depends on an aligned instructional culture throughout schools and districts. NTC’s programs ensure that all educators — teachers, coaches, leaders — are connected to the center, feel clear and secure everywhere in the ecosystem, and share equally in building and strengthening its identity.

When that happens, students are surrounded with support, so they can thrive academically and emotionally.

How We Work With You

A partnership, not a product

When you partner with NTC, we co-create programs tailored to your unique needs, budget, and timeline, supported by a plan to implement, monitor, and sustain them.

We’ll sit down together and build your school an equitable, humanized educational culture of high-quality learning, increased teacher retention, and better student outcomes.

Here’s how we do it:

It starts with listening. You tell us:

  • Where your system is strong
  • Where your system is challenged
  • Where there are inequities
  • Where you want to drive change
  • The vision you imagine

Then let’s make a plan that will:

  • Center on students
  • Move toward equity and empathy
  • Involve educators at all levels of your system
  • Develop instructional best practices that are culturally appropriate and curriculum-activating
  • Aim for rigorous academic standards
  • Align school culture

Then we tailor to your system:

  • Instructional coaching and induction programs
  • Job-embedded educator supports at all levels
  • Peer networking solutions
  • Professional learning communities
  • Tools to measure demonstrated impact

You’re ensured continuous improvement with:

  • Two-year professional learning programs for educators at all levels
  • Two-year instructional peer coaching programs
  • Regular forums that maintain communities of educational practice

You get tools for long-term sustainability:

  • Mentorship programs for continuous evaluation
  • Data-driven evidence of student learning outcomes
  • A plan for evolving the curriculum appropriate to school culture
  • Professional learning opportunities to maintain and increase continuous connection
