Peer Coaching Program

Designed for classroom teachers, guidance, and support personnel, the Hidden Sparks Peer Coaching Program cultivates a supportive relationship between partner teachers so that they can work together to understand their students more deeply. Together, they will learn to combine their new knowledge of the Learning Lenses framework along with their teaching experiences to support students even more effectively.

Participants will learn how to use observations of student behavior and/or student work to anchor their strength-based conversations with their peer coaching partner.  

By the end of the year peer coaches will be able to meet independently at least once per month for productive discussions about their students using observations of students and/or observations of student work.

Educators that participate in the Peer Coaching Program receive training in:
  • Understanding the Hidden Sparks Learning LensesĀ® framework: 1. The neurodevelopmental constructs such as: Language, Attention, Memory, Temporal Sequential Organization, Social Cognition, Higher Order Cognition, and Ordering Systems, 2.  Ecology and Classroom Ecology and their impact on success in school, and 3. Temperamental Traits and their affect on children’s learning experiences.
  • Observing students through the lenses, debrief on their strengths and challenges with their peers. and developing strategies.
  • Please note, we are currently accepting applications from schools in the NY/NJ Metro area. Schools in other areas are advised to contact the office regarding our other programs and bringing this program to their city.
