Degrees and Certifications:
My name is John Fischer, and I am an instructional coach for Chappelow and also for Heath Middle School. I collaborate with teachers around instructional practice and arts integration to learn, inspire, reflect, share resources, and provide coaching to continue driving the pursuit of excellence in instruction throughout the school.
Over the last 10 years, I have taught K-5 music, alternative music programs to young adults, and multiple grade levels in the content classroom. My professional experience has taken me to Nebraska, Illinois, Arkansas, and now Colorado where I have had the privilege to work with over 1,000 students in six public schools, three community programs, and a federal residential facility. i took pride in helping my students grow and achieve at high levels.
Although officially an instructional coach, I still consider myself to be a teacher first and foremost. I am committed to seeing every student succeed, and I am passionate about the art and science of teaching. I feel incredibly grateful to work with such amazing teachers from whom I am constantly learning.
My wife and I moved to Northern Colorado in 2017, and enjoy spending time together with our two boys exploring this great state!
