Twenty Program Directors and Managing Directors from Teach for America-New York (TFA-NY) participated in the “Coach the Coaches” series conducted by Matthew Rouse, PhD, MSW. The 4-week series taught participants the same cognitive behavioral skills for stress management and emotional resilience that will be brought to the TFA-NY teachers as part of ongoing training.
Workshop participants were enthusiastic about the practical applications of the series:
“I found it helpful to learn tangible strategies and tools, but also appreciated the opportunity to discuss big picture ideas as a group.”
“I liked the concrete strategies to coach what is often the heart of our work and happening most of the time.”
