Sara Robinson is a proponent of lifelong learning, this is an educator who practices what she preaches. Robinson has a master's in curriculum and instruction, yet continues taking classes towards a Reading Specialist Endorsement to further sharpen her skill set.
She uses formative and summative assessments and also differentiates instruction to ensure she reaches each child. Her intervention classroom is a "model of civility," where she employs cooperative groups in a goal-oriented, nurturing environment. Strategies are research-based and designed to make learning engaging and increase student achievement.
Outside the classroom, Robinson serves as reading improvement chair for the building's reading team, and mentors district math and curriculum teams, among other leadership posts. She garners grants left and right for classroom tech, and new teachers frequently stop by to watch her in action. Robinson also helms staff meetings, where she's often found offering guidance to her colleagues and sharing her love of the profession.
With my current position as an instructional coach, I get the opportunity to work with teachers in both formal and informal coaching cycles. This is my second year in the position.
