For a Free Coaching Session

What is Coaching?*

  1. Imagine a relationship that is entirely focused upon you.
  2. Imagine someone listening rather than just hearing you.
  3. Imagine someone who holds you accountable to dreams and aspirations.
  4. Imagine a relationship with someone insatiably curious about who you are and who you intend to be.
  5. Imagine a relationship in your life with an individual who is often more committed to what you want to achieve in life than you are.
  6. Imagine a relationship with someone who has no agenda other than your growth and success.
  7. Imagine someone in your life who sees the enormity of your true essence.
  8. Imagine a relationship where you finally break free of the prison of self-limiting beliefs that has sabotaged your growth and success in the past.
  9. Whenever a person is sharing information, they are teaching or training.
  10. Whenever someone is sharing their experience, they are mentoring.
  11. Whenever someone is asking open, explorative questions and listening deeply, they are coaching.

Constance Barnes

Watching Constance Barnes walk through the doors of the tiny Alabama Public Library several years ago and hearing her 9th grade History teacher, Mrs. June Shirey, shriek ,“YOU’RE A TEACHER?!” was one of many milestones along the journey to leadership. At the time she was actually the Dean of Students and Assistant Principal, which drove Mrs. Shirey into further hysterics.

         It all started on the heels of the Million Man March in 2005 with an inspiration to “do something,” Constance and her cousin formed a youth mentoring group in NY to offer cultural outings and exchanges for children in the inner city. Having befriended several educators, she came to a crossroads between a career in Computer Science and Education and chose education - which has made all the difference.

Constance’s first experience in public education in a self-contained, special education “closet,” propelled her desire to move outside of the classroom and into leadership to become a better advocate for children. Her career has taken her from those dimly lit hallways in Hunts Point to Academic Administration in Astoria, the Superintendent’s Cabinet in South Carolina, and now to Regional Manager of 10 states for the nation’s oldest virtual education company, K12.com.

         Even now from her regional perch, Constance’s unyielding goal is to be an advocate for underserved families to ensure that equal educational access is granted to all.

Victor Jaccarino

As an educator of almost fifty years, Victor always identifies himself as a teacher first.  As a Chair of English, he was fortunate enough to find himself during his last twenty years in a district that encouraged him to define his own position.  While in the Herricks School District on Long Island, he led his departments to develop curriculum that raised standards for all before the common core existed. When he and his departments eliminated their honors programs, his AP scores went up. When he instituted an initiative to differentiate instruction for all students, his State test scores went up. And when he insisted that teaching “to the test” was hurting students, scores went up.

A leader in both pedagogy and academics, he was elected President of the New York State English Council where he and his team held the biggest conference in the history of the organization, bringing over 1000 teachers to Albany to learn together. As Chair of the National Council of Teachers of English Convention at the Javits Center in New York City, he helped NCTE reach over 8000 teachers nation wide. And as Board member of the Conference on English Leadership, he presented workshop after workshop on how to improve literacy in classrooms. He is proudest of the work he has done with and for his professional organizations. Victor believes that teachers must work together to explore and improve their craft, and he has been working with pre-service teachers for over 15 years at Hofstra University training them to become student centered instructors.

While working at Herricks and after retirement, Victor has been a consultant to the New York State Education Department and to over fifty school districts. He works with teachers in all subject areas, promoting critical thinking skills and collaboration among teachers and students. He believes that the work he is doing now is more important than any he has done. Each week for the past five years, he works with administrators and teachers to improve instruction through practical, hands on workshops and coaching.

         And he always reminds us that what we do is about the kids, improving both their motivation, their academic engagement and their lives.
