Classroom Coaching Made Easy.

Nearly 50% of teachers leave the profession within five years, citing behavior and discipline as major reasons for leaving. However, quality professional development and mentoring can keep teachers in the classroom and hone their skills. Our classroom coaching tool helps you better support these teachers through a collaborative process that helps them drive their learning and gain the knowledge & skills they need for success.

What Others Have to Say...

The Emergent Tree Universal Behavior Screener has given us insights not only into our student needs, but our teacher and campus needs also. As a district behavior specialist I can support campuses by looking at their data to drive my professional development offerings and coaching approaches.

As a campus principal, I really relied on my staff to tell me when a student needed more supports. But sometimes by the time a staff contacted me, they were already so overwhelmed or frustrated with the behavior that they struggled to shift their thinking and try new things. The Universal Screener allows us to identify students before behavior has impacted the teacher or the classroom creating much more collaborative problem-solving teams and more effective intervention delivery.
We wanted our campuses to take a more data driven approach to MTSS, especially behaviorally. We were already screening for academic areas, but still relying on office discipline referrals to drive our behavior thinking. The Emergent Tree Universal Screener has given us more insight and a proactive approach to mirror our academic screening processes.
I'd describe the support provided by Emergent Tree staff as phenomenal because it is customized to meet our needs. They truly meet us where we are without judgment. Every Emergent Tree staff member has been helpful, resourceful, and patient. We truly value this partnership.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use this with multiple teachers?

Yes – you can observe different teachers across different observations. Individual teachers can be observed multiple times. With the campus license, you can view your own observations and the observations of others, depending on your user access levels. 

Can this be used on a mobile device?

The classroom coaching tool is a progressive web app, designed to work on a phone, tablet, or computer.  On mobile devices, the tool will flex to fit the available screen, and touch controls will be enabled. 

Can this tool be used for teacher evaluation?

The classroom coaching tool is designed as a coaching tool, facilitating data-driven goal setting, and providing progress monitoring.  Depending on your campus/district evaluative process, the classroom coaching tool may provide helpful data, but is not designed explicitly for that purpose.

Does the teacher have access to the observation data collected?

Only users assigned to a particular teacher record can see the data that is collected. But, data reports and coaching action plans can be emailed directly from the software in PDF format to teachers or other stakeholders at any time.
