What leaders in education are saying about Thought Partners Coaching

My work with Tracey Shiel has benefited my staff, community, and most importantly my students. Well versed with current research and the ability to affect change, Tracey supports me by asking the difficult questions that challenge my thinking. As a guide, Tracey helped me clearly assess where we were as a school, plan where we are going, and monitor our progress. My work with Tracey gets results for my students and provides me with a safety net when the going gets tough
