    I feel fortunate to work with such talented educators here at Parkwood! As the building’s instructional coach, I work with teachers and students to enhance the learning of all students by supporting teachers in ongoing, job-embedded professional learning. Coaching roles include:

    • Thought partner for teachers: working with teachers to think through new ideas, concepts & applications for the classroom
    • Professional learning leader: design & facilitate effective professional learning
    • Instructional leader: foster an environment where reflective thinking prompts analysis of teaching practice, & implementation of effective teaching practices that support student learning
    • School leader: Advocate for school wide initiatives to support student learning
    • Curriculum/Content Facilitator: support implementation of CCSS and a bridge to content TOSAs at the district
    • Resource Provider: Expand and enhance instruction through variety of resources
    • Data Driven Coach: Facilitate conversations around data driven instructional decisions

    I collaborate with staff in a variety of ways:

    • Leading professional development for the building or district
    • Supporting PLC work or other small groups
    • One-on-one support to teachers as requested

    I can co-plan, co-teach, observe and give feedback, model lessons or any of the roles listed above.

    My name is Lori Scobie and I’ve taught in the Shoreline School District since 1995. After completing my Masters in Teaching at Seattle University, I continued to be involved with Teacher Education through adjunct course instruction, supervising student teachers, and modeling lessons.

    I’ve taught at North City, Echo Lake & Lake Forest Park Elementaries mostly in grades 3-4, in the classroom teacher, as an interventionist, as overload support, as a writing coach and now as an Instructional Coach.  

    In my freetime I enjoy being outside hiking, cross-country skiing or gardening and being inside reading or doing yoga.  I live in Edmonds with my husband and two children.
