Our Story

The Core Coaches came together quite randomly.  Emily and Tatum met on a writing team while designing teacher professional development courses for the State of Utah.  They soon became friends and began presenting together across the state.  Emily and Amy met when they began working together at a new charter school.  Emily was her instructional coach and the two of them started working closely together to design curriculum for the school.
