The Art of Coaching offers all the tools necessary for professionals who coach educators. It demystifies the process of coaching with easy-to-apply, immediately actionable ideas.

Lynda Tredway, Independent Leadership Coach, Washington D.C. and former coordinator, Principal Leadership Institute, U.C. Berkeley

"Elena Aguilar knows how to foster the bravery and humility teachers must have to transform their practices. Her methods will help coaches become the trusted, supportive forces we need in our teaching lives."
Ariel Sacks, teacher leader and education writer, Brooklyn, New York

Heather Lechner, turnaround school leader, New Orleans, Louisiana

"In this book, Aguilar masterfully covers the theory of coaching and offers much wise and practical advice brought to life through engaging stories from her experience."
