Getting support should not be the "next step" . . .

It should be your first one.

Hi, I'm Nicolette Lesniak

{Coaching Around You} Founder


There are a million things you can be doing to support teaching and learning, but are you getting the results you want at the rate that you want them. If you are getting lost in the paperwork, collaboration, lesson planning and classroom management, getting a clarity and having a coach available to help you solve problems is essenfial to improving student learning and outcomes.

Ater years of working as a teacher and educational leader for several school districts, I decided it was time to coach other teachers who feel they they are on an island by themselves. Being a special education teacher can be a lonley job, but it doesn't have to be. Working with you, I will help you develop systems to achieve your teacher goals and guide you to maintain the focus and energy when you first began teaching. The doubt, fear and confusion you are feeling will fade away and you will be filled with confidence that what you are doing in your classroom is benefiting each and every student. 

I am here to support you, focus on what really matters in your classroom.

Your classroom can be traditional, virtual or home school. I invite you to schedule a free Coaching Inquiry Call  to see if my style of coaching is right for you.

To your success, 

Nicolette Lesniak,
Founder, IEP Coaching Around YOU


Why {IEP Coaching Around You}?


Many people ask why I would leave a successful education job to teach others. Simple! I want to share with others what I have learned from working in the field over 20 years and support them with the hurdles of being an intensive needs teacher, while also building sustained parent partnerships with as many educators  as possible. 

IEP Coaching Around You is about capitalizing on what’s AWESOME  in your classroom. Your experience as a teacher is grounded in your personal goals: some teachers work on their communication or organizational skills. Others focus on building teacher resilience or self-reflection. Whatever it may be, Coaching Around You will empower you every step of the way.

When you join IEP Coaching Around You, you’ll get instant access to my support where you will get impactful Virtual Instructional Coaching that impacts student outcomes, and focuses on your needs and the students in your classroom.

Teaching is a necessary part of  life, and it isn’t going away. If you are interested in building your teaching repertoire, I will show you how!
