Instructional Coaching Program

WCBVI is pleased to provide vision-specific instructional coaching for Wisconsin’s newly licensed Teachers of the Visually Impaired and Orientation and Mobility Specialists!

General Information 


New Teachers (Protégés)


The WCBVI Instructional Coaching Program matches newly licensed teachers of the visually impaired (TVIs) and orientation and mobility specialists (O&Ms) with experienced vision professionals in Wisconsin schools. This program strives to provide a coach through the first year of employment and for one entire school year beyond when all training and certification requirements are completed.

The WCBVI Instructional Coaching Program benefits school districts, coaches, protégés, and most importantly STUDENTS!

Teacher Toolkit!

These resources were collected during the first two years of the Instructional Coaching program. We asked the coaches, “What are some ‘must haves’ for new teachers?” We worked together to begin accumulating some favorite forms, strategies, assessments, and more! Each summer we will update these resources. Please send your favorites to Alisha Ragainis or Kay Rhode.
