Discussion: Coaching in Adult Ed with Part-time Teachers

I'm a state-level Adult Ed professional development coordinator and presenter in my state (among other things, hahaha). As a trained instructional coach in the K-12 system, I am interested in implementing a coaching model in our state, but there is a lot of skepticism about the feasibility of utilizing instructional coaches in a setting with mostly part-time teachers. I'm looking for success stories, if there are any, preferably at a state or regional level, of coaching implementation.  

Thanks in advance for all your thoughts!
