“Eller and Eller have hit the mark. There are books that principals read and put on their reference shelves, and then there are books like Score to Soar that we will keep on our desks as a road map for working with teachers to improve their craft. This book gives supervisors tangible approaches to coaching teachers at all points in their careers.”
