"I think the biggest part [of transitioning from a teacher to a curriculum coach] for me was realizing that it isn't 'hey, I've got these things that I can provide for you,' but it's 'hey teachers, what do you need?'" [9:10-9:20] Spencer Martin
"What I've found has worked for me is actually adopting that posture of a learner with the teacher. So, sitting down and really just arguing and debating and wrestling over the resource and saying 'how am I going to implement this?' So we create a professional learning community--a real one, not just something labeled a PLC." [15:00-15:25] Spencer Martin
