I enrolled in this course with the intention of growing professionally, as I transitioned form a career in teaching to a career in coaching, but ended up with so much more! From the first day, I felt a sense of connectedness and curiosity. Every lesson was packed with thought provoking content, and each assignment felt deeply meaningful, not only professionally, but personally as well. I highly recommend the peer coaching opportunities in this course, not only for the chance to practice, but also for the wonderful relationships that are formed. I don’t remember the last time I felt this excited about begin a student!
