Hi my name is Whitney Coppinger. I am the Instructional Coach at Martin Elementary. I received my BA in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University and my Masters in Educational Leadership from Lamar University. My passion is to guide, mentor, and inspire teachers to create and uphold the best learning environment and experience for the students and teachers.
I am very excited to be the Instructional Coach at Martin. As an instructional coach I have had several opportunities to lead and develop teacher’s skills in the classroom. I am able to assist teachers with lessons, resources, technology, and instruction. We have amazing teachers at Martin and it is an honor to be able to help their vision and ideas come to life.
I believe the key to successful learning is to create a learning environment that excites our students to become inquisitive and develop the desire to want to acquire knowledge. Equally important is to foster a working environment that educators are encouraged to find and utilize their passion in the classroom on a daily basis. There are many different types of learning and teaching styles and it is imperative for teachers and administrators to be aware of each style and build towards fostering a growth minded educational experience.
