What are some of the best parts of working with Elevate K-12 online instructors?

All the teachers I coach have the individual students as their main priority! They are all eager for information and coaching to be successful online instructors.

What excites you most about the work you do with Elevate K-12?

I love having a positive impact on the people I coach. I also love to be there for them whenever they need me.

Describe your best moment as an Academic Coach. Be specific!

My best moment was the first time I heard a dialogue between an Algebra 1 student and a teacher, explaining their thought process on how to do a difficult problem. With continuous questioning, the teacher was able to show the student they had all the necessary skills to be successful in math! If I had closed my eyes, I would have thought they were in the same room together instead of online.

What do you like about working from home/remotely?

I get to work with students and colleagues from around the US.

Tell us a little more about who you are--what do you like to do?

In my free time, I love to go on nature walks with my two dogs. I also play chess and disc golf. The best is visiting with my family!

Thanks, Mark G.!
