IMPACT COACHING PARTNERS

Impact Coaching Partners is a team of experienced instructional coaches who provide new teachers the individual support they need as they begin their careers. Our work is founded on two key beliefs. First, every student deserves great instruction every year. Second, teaching is incredibly hard, and new teachers often need more support than their schools are able to give. We’ve designed our coaching model to promote rapid teacher development so that students can thrive.

Meet Our Team

We have chosen to focus on scaling slowly to ensure that we are providing high quality service to every educator with whom we work. Currently, the team is just the two of us, Lindsey and Marc, partners in both work and life.

Lindsey Epstein

Prior to starting Impact Coaching Partners, Lindsey taught in Avondale, Arizona and Newark, New Jersey. Teaching fifth grade in Arizona, she was named a Westside Teacher of the Year, and as the math and science coach at KIPP Rise in Newark, she earned the Impact Award for significant impact in student learning. She is an avid backpacker and reader; her current goal is 100 books in 2022.

Marc Sorresso

Marc began his education career with Teach For America in Newark, New Jersey, where he taught middle school math and science for ten years. While Marc’s students scored among the highest in the KIPP network, he also supported new teachers as an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University, assistant principal at KIPP Rise Academy, and program director at Teach For America - New Jersey. Marc enjoys running, skiing, and camping and is currently a student at Harvard Graduate School of Education.
