  1. Thanks for sharing this. I love how you honestly share good and bad things about how you approach learning in both of these positions. If only we all both of these experiences to be able to try to bring the best of each to our classrooms.

  2. I think your ten differences were amazing many teachers feel that to show there flaws make them less of a teacher which isn't true (9). The fact that you brought differences out of two of the rivals in many schools is very insightful, I have seen and heard first hand statements like, " what makes that coach think he can teach a class, and why does that teacher think that she/he is so great let’s see if they can coach my team”, which I believe in some forms are commonly said in every school system. Even though the truth being that both teacher and coaches can learn from each other and that’s what I got out of your post. That difference don’t always have to be a bad thing and can be learned from, Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thank you very much for this post. I'm a full-time coach this year for the first time (after teaching and teaching/coaching for a while). My first impressions are similar to yours, but you expressed them clearly and vividly. I think I'll likely come back to this post as I figure out my way.

  4. Mr John Spencer,
    Im a student from the University of South Alabama, and I am studing Elementary Education because I enjoy children. I really enjoyed reading the 10 differences between Teaching and Coaching. They are different in many ways as you know. I do believe that teachers are part of the community and learn their background and try to help them all ways as possible. Coachs do on the other hand have the same effect on childrens lives like a teacher, but in your post you explained it very clear. You expressed they are different but in a good way, and this could help teachers and coachs know their role in the community.
    Thanks,

    Hillary Hamlin
