In a recent interview for eSchool News, Megan Schlagel, a high school math teacher with St. Vrain Valley Schools, discusses the use of AI in teacher professional development and shares her experience with the AI Coach platform.

Schlagel highlights how this AI-driven approach enhances reflective practices and teaching methods, allowing for a less pressured and more effective self-evaluation process.

Below are some key quotes from the interview:

  • The guidance from the virtual coach helped me think more critically about my practice (…and it also made me laugh – the coach can definitely be funny and sassy at times!).
  • Sometimes it can be daunting—or even feel less genuine—when a coach or administrator comes in to conduct a formal observation. You may be worried about how your students are acting or unknowingly teach differently than normal.
  • With the AI Coach process, I feel less pressure because it really is just myself reflecting on my teaching alongside a computerized coach. This gives me more freedom to try out a new instructional strategy or take a risk with how I deliver a lesson, without having the feeling of being evaluated.
