Riccardo Midwinter’s Tales of The Coach in the Classroom 9

Chapter 4: Classroom Fight It was the headteacher, Randolph, who told Riccardo why the school board had invested in coaching. Randolph’s appearance had immediately put Riccardo in mind of a tenacious canine. He had large brown eyes and his face was cleft by a hooked nose and bushy eyebrows that divided his face. Randolph’s hair was fine, straight, of a pale-yellow colour and of medium-length pulled back behind his ears. On his chin bristled three days of dark stubble. Randolph was very tall with a masculine build which made Riccardo seem frail by comparison. Randolph’s wardrobe was artistic and tightly sewn, with a lot of orange and brown, which appealed to Riccardo’s appreciation for the colours of autumn. "The teachers at the school", Randolph said, "were recently inspected and found to be lacking certain skills in a variety of areas. However, no single skill area was seriously lacking throughout the entire staff," Randolph stated, lifting his chin with pride. "I have offered selected teachers the opportunity of being coached – following their individualised professional development plan," he continued. "I want to be clear, this coaching is offered on an individual and voluntary basis. It was not offered to all the teachers." Randolph growled with the determination in his explanation, "They each have different needs. Some of them have chosen to receive training, others individual coaching. Some, for a variety of reasons, have opted to be both observed whilst teaching and then coached afterwards. That's where you come in," Randolph commanded, "You can start with Jayne." He handed Riccardo a piece of paper with her handwritten name and phone number. That seemed to be the end of the meeting. Randolph went quiet, nodded his approval of their silent agreement, and returned his bristly canine gaze to the computer screen in front of him. Riccardo recognised the signals as having been given permission to leave the room and go about his coaching assignment in the way that he, and Jayne, chose. No further comment was necessary. No reporting was necessary. The details would reveal themselves when he met Jayne. 95
