The Chicago Coaching Center is a progressive collection of instructional coaches interested in providing a collaborative learning environment for instructional coaches and teachers who wish to develop their craft. All of our professional learning offerings are designed by coaches and teachers for coaches and teachers. The coaching center was founded by Dr. Ken Wallace, superintendent in Maine Township District 207 located in Park Ridge, IL and is currently directed by Jill Geocaris, the Adult Learning Coordinator in District 207. The coaching center partners with the Illinois Council of Instructional Coaches and several area districts to develop curriculum for its instructional coaching certification programs. In addition, the center provides a wide range of summer workshops on best practices in teaching and learning. The Chicago Coaching Center prides itself in providing engaging adult learning experiences that are designed to allow participants to learn and grow through their interaction with one another.
