During the school year, Pathway Teachers receive support through online coursework, in-person professional learning sessions, and instructional coaching. You’ll take online classes that correspond with your subject area, attend sessions facilitated by program and district staff, and have a coach who provides one-on-one feedback. You and your coach debrief observation feedback, evaluate data, and discuss coursework and in-person sessions.
