This #coachbetter episode connects us back to our episodes from the spring – even though we’ve been in it for a while, we’re still constantly preparing to go remote, and this highlights the interplay between remote and F2F learning, particularly in our coaching practice.

We have five of our superstar coaches from the podcast: Amy, Tim, Diana, Ben, and Will, so you get a wide range of perspectives and experiences! Since many of the schools we were in are back to face-to-face instruction, we also wanted to highlight the transition back to on-site school after an extended period of remote learning. We talk about what worked and what didn’t during remote learning, as well as the experiences coming back to in-person learning this academic year!
