Providing mathematics coaches in schools assists mathematics teachers in assessing student understanding and addressing student needs. Many organizations currently are providing secondary mathematics coaching facilitated through grant funds, state funds, or local funds. The purpose of this paper is to discuss professional development offered to novice mathematics coaches in regard to preparing them for coaching duties; recommendations for improving the professional development based on research about professional development for educators are included.
