My coaching sketchnote book has transformed my coaching life and I know it can do the same for you.
I have a love for all things literacy teaching, coaching and leading. I’ve dedicated my career to creating spaces for learning that build teacher expertise, spark intentional reflection and connect philosophy to pedagogy.
I’ve carved out a little corner of the virtual world just for instructional coaches and leaders to fuel their work and receive the same level of support and energy they provide for their teachers.
My professional passion? I've fused my love of notebooks, markers and sticky notes with digital tools and technology to innovate instructional coaching and lifelong teacher reading, writing and learning.
So, what's a Coaching Sketchnote Book?
Have you ever found yourself struggling to plan for a professional learning session with teachers? Or spent hours planning for a session that just didn't feel right? I can relate. Planning professional learning experiences for teachers used to be my professional nemesis...until I harnessed the power of design thinking to create a coaching sketchnote book.
Just as athletic coaches create playbooks to house and organize plays for their athletes, instructional coaches can create sketchnote books to capture and curate their ideas to best support teacher learning.
These curated collections of coaching tools help you to literally design teacher learning experiences on the page so that you can better enact them in real life. But better yet, by carefully choosing, designing and curating your pages, they support our own learning, reflection and goal-setting, too!
Creating your own coaching sketchnote book will transform your coaching life.
Wondering how a simple notebook can change your coaching life? By combining the power of design thinking and sketchnoting, we can approach our coaching role with curiosity and creativity. Our coaching sketchnote book:
- prompts us to think carefully about the kind of coaching life we want to have and experiences we want to provide teachers.
- curates our tried-and-true activities to engage teachers in professional learning to make planning a breeze.
- offers a safe space to tinker with new ideas to keep professional learning fresh and exciting.
- invites reflection and continued growth as the lead learner in a school.

The Create a Coaching Sketchnote Book Workshop takes you on a 5-step journey to cultivate your ideal coaching life, one page at a time. It includes four on-demand videos, a live, interactive session inviting you to create your own coaching sketchnote book and a 7-day challenge to cultivate your notebook habit.
You’ll gain step-by-step directions for creating and designing your own unique sketchnote book to reflect your coaching context, the teachers and students you work with, the skills and dispositions you hope to cultivate and the instructional pedagogy you hope to model. Here are some of the questions we'll explore:
- What is a coaching sketchnote book and why is it so important?
- How do I create my own coaching sketchnote book?
- How can I harness the power of the notebook to craft the coaching role of my dreams?
- What is sketchnoting and how does it support my own understanding of coaching?
- How can I use my notebook to set goals and grow as an instructional leader?
And in the process, you'll get your own coach! Throughout the live and on-demand sessions, you'll engage in innovative activities as a learner: inviting opening moves, engaging ways to reflect, collaborative small group activities and more, all paired with all the tools you need to inspire your own coaching.
