March 3, 2024 On several topics, including a humble tribute to Mark Hello, I hope you are well. Thank you for reading the Coaching Letter, you rock. I try to write a Coaching Letter twice a month, but frequently there is so much going on that I find it difficult to focus on just one thing, so this one is just what’s on my mind lately. My friend Mark Rabinowitz died last week, so he has been occupying my thoughts.

January 17, 2024   On redefining what we mean by instructional leadership Friends, I hope this finds you well. Here in Connecticut it has been really cold and icy, with school in most places canceled yesterday and delayed today. And Monday was a holiday in honor of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King.
