Happily, I’m beginning to see the word “coach” show up in education literature when speaking of teachers working with students.
Dr. Linda Hopper is a High School Business and Spanish teacher with Masters degrees in International Management from Thunderbird School of Global Management (Arizona State University) and in Teaching from Greenville College. She holds a Ph.D. in Professional Coaching and Human Development from the International University of Professional Studies. After a career in banking as a commercial lender, she had a successful coaching and training business working primarily with small businesses, entrepreneurs and non-‐profit organizations. She felt called to go into teaching when some of her clients repeatedly asked, “Why don’t we learn about this stuff in school? Why did I have to wait until my (30’s, 40’s, 50’s) to figure this out?” Her goal is to incorporate coaching into the average classroom and share this knowledge in a collaborative manner with other teachers desiring to help students reach their potentials.
