IEP Coaching Around YOU

I'm Nicolette Lesniak

As an educator, coach and teacher leader, what set's my soul on fire is sharing my passion of teaching and learning with others and making sure that all students are receiving an inclusive education where they are valued, fully supported to succeed in making progress: academically, behaviorally and socially, while building on what makes them unique. 

There are a million things you can be doing to support teaching and learning, but if you are getting lost in the paperwork, collaboration, lesson planning, and classroom management, having someone by your side to support you to get clarity and solve problems will benefit your drive to improve student learning and outcomes.

I am here to support you, focus on what really matters in your classroom and home. I invite you to schedule a free Inquiry call  to see if my coaching and advocacy style is right for you.
