Meet Stacey Turknett – Imagine School at Evening Rose’s Character Coach
What is a Character Coach?
The Character Coach at Imagine Evening Rose is available to help students, parents and teachers develop positive learning experiences. The Character Coach position consists of a variety of services and activities, including parent and teacher consultation, school discipline, information services, and referral assistance to other agencies in the community.
The Character Coach is responsible for developing, scheduling, and evaluating character education programs and enrichment services and is assisted by the Character Committee and the school principal. Primary services of the Character Coach are to provide direct assistance to students in the school. For this reason, a major portion of the Character Coach’s day consists of responsive services that help students with behavioral goals and expectations, personal, and social development. Parent and teacher consultations with the Character Coach usually occur in the early morning before classes or during after school hours.
The Character Coach is not a certified school counselor and should not be viewed as such. However, the Character Coach has education in the area appropriate to being a Character Coach such as: family communication, child abuse prevention, multiculturalism, juvenile delinquency, social theory, and human development along with practical years in the education field. The Character Coach’s office is located in Building Two, and appointments can be scheduled by calling 850-877-5187, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to 3611 Austin Davis Ave., Tallahassee, Fl 32308.
