Our teachers already have an abundance of resources to help students learn. How can eSuite help?
For teachers who are rich in the “what,” eSuite provides a personalized coaching and support system on the “how.” The e2L Best Practices standards and rubrics that are coached through eGroweCoach and mySmartCoach sessions include actionable strategies that teachers can incorporate into their daily practice, whether they teach face-to-face, virtually, or in a hybrid setting.
Does eSuite support coaching in a virtual setting?
It doesn’t just support it - it’s made for it!  In fact, it’s hard to imagine coaching virtually without it. When coaching virtually, it’s critical to have a coaching management platform to capture goals, next steps, growth data, and celebrations, so teachers feel supported and have access to a knowledge base that guides them. It fosters a personal connection between coach and coachee and gives teachers a direct line to other teachers, Best Practices, and ideas to take their daily practice to the next level.
We already have a fabulous team of coaches. How does eSuite fit in? What value does it add?
How do you know if your coaching is truly making the impact you envision?  With eGroweCoach and mySmartCoach, your fabulous coaching team can collect data on the growth they see in their coachees and allow you to quantify the value of your coaching team. As a leader, you identify patterns and trends through coaching and growth analytics in impactConsole while also drilling down into any coaching conversation that takes place in your district.
