Teachers.Net Gazette Hosts New Column: Coaching the Urban Educator

Urban teaching coach joins line up of expert columnists at Teachers.Net.

San Diego, CA, September 29, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Urban educators, with their unique challenges and needs, are the beneficiaries of a new Teachers.Net Gazette advice column, “Coaching the Urban Educator” written by teacher coach and trainer Kioni Carter. Carter’s premier column in the September 2008 Teachers.Net Gazette offered advice about how to manage the first day of school with “known trouble makers,” and how to stay positive when principals aren’t knocking down your door with job offers.

In this month's column (http://teachers.net/gazette/OCT08/carter) Kioni coaches two NYC school teachers on how to address a negative supervisor and how to build “therapy” into lesson-planning in order to help students who have mental and/or emotional issues.

Kioni Carter is a graduate of Cornell University with a major in Human Development and minors in Africana Studies and Dance. She is also a graduate of Long Island University with a Masters of Science in Elementary Education, and a graduate of the Institute for Professional Empowerment Coaching. An active member of the International Coach Federation, Kioni provides coaching and training programs for educators in the NYC Public School System as well as in the education-based, non-profit sector. She says her primary workshop, My Classroom Rules! is her pride and joy.

The monthly Teachers.Net Gazette web-based magazine offers more than two dozen articles and features in every issue and is linked from all pages on the Teachers.Net site, or by email subscription.
