Supporting teachers and enhancing student outcomes

Amy Green is committed to helping teachers.

Over the years and in different countries, I’ve had friends who are teachers and I have noticed a common thread in most of them: They were stressed, over-worked and spoke a lot about feeling undervalued and unsupported.

With the unfortunate and devastating school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, USA in February this year, the US president suggested teachers should be armed with guns as a solution to school shootings. This absurdity made me realise there are those that expect so much from teachers and don’t realise how overworked or stressed out many teachers already feel.

I found a teacher who has dedicated her life to helping teachers cope with the struggles that come with the career.

Amy Green founded The Teacher’s Coach with the philosophy that without value and support for our teachers, education is wasted. She believes happy teachers make for happy, engaged students. Therefore, her goal is to make sure we have happy teachers and so far, her work has made a significant impact – not just on teachers but also on student outcomes.
