The Bergens Instructional Coach Team

Instructional Coaches


Instructional Coaches are an integral part of our success at the Bergens. Laura Bechtholdt, Bergen Meadow, Cristi Galan, Bergen Valley, and Danielle Askinazy, ESL support the staff, students and community at the Bergens to be the best!


We have four roles as Instructional Coaches.

1. Instructional Specialists: We co-teach and co-plan with teachers, as well as, model best practices of instruction.

2. Data Coach: As educators, we continually assess students to be sure they are consistently showing progress. As Coaches, we assist with data meetings by preparing data, making charts to display data, and facilitating discussions around student achievement to drive classroom instruction.

3. Capacity Builder and Change Agent: We build competence and confidence with our instructional staff by creating a collegial learning environment. By building collaborative professional learning communities through weekly discussions, we develop relationships that increase rigor and change classroom practice.

4. District and School Improvement Leader: We work collaboratively with our principal, Peggy Miller, our Assistant Principal, Darby Brady, our ESL Teacher, Danielle Askinazy, our librarian, Teri Schuch, and The Bergens' leadership team to implement school improvement initiatives aligned with urgent challenges. Together The Bergens' team will provide the best for your child.
