Congrats to our Microsoft Certified Coach Dianne Krause

We are pleased to announce that Dianne Krause, Wissahickon’s K-12 Instructional Technology Specialist and Coach, has earned the Microsoft Certified Coach credential. This certification is a testament to their commitment to professional development and their dedication to improving the quality of education in our community.

The Microsoft Certified Coach program is a comprehensive coaching program that combines the latest research, classroom strategies, and coaching tools. The program is guided by the ISTE Standards for Coaches and models Microsoft technologies for education. The program is designed to help educators develop the skills necessary to become effective instructional coaches and to support the integration of technology in their schools and networks.

To earn the Microsoft Certified Coach credential, Mrs. Krause completed a rigorous training program hosted by insight2execution, a Microsoft Global Training Partner, that included a two-day in person workshop, monthly check-ins, and a final portfolio project. The program focused on developing the skills necessary to become an effective coach, including communication, collaboration, and leadership. Mrs. Krause also demonstrated their ability to apply these skills in a real-world setting through a collection of artifacts to showcase their coaching abilities.

As a Microsoft Certified Coach, Mrs. Krause will be equipped to support their colleagues in innovative, effective teaching and learning practices.
