In this chapter, the authors explore the influence of a synchronous teacher leadership coaching design on supporting an educator's micro-credential experience within an established system. The authors include several experienced leadership coaches who had the opportunity to support teachers in this work. The coaching model created by this partnership was particularly interesting because it integrated established best practices of micro-credentials (e.g., tied to financial incentives), while also addressing some of the key challenges (e.g., communication). Findings include that coaching teacher leaders was especially useful to those teachers hesitant to start or complete a micro-credential on their own, thus making coaching a valuable tool for districts looking to implement micro-credentials districtwide.
