"Ms. O'Garro's coaching has allowed me to improve my teaching practice by more firmly grounding my teaching decisions to concrete assessment data. This has allowed me to illuminate the relevant questions about student learning that help me to find new teaching methods that align more with my core belief that all students can learn and engage in rigorous classwork that improves their critical thinking skills and is relevant to their diverse cultures and identities."
