I'm Dr. Shira
I’m a former elementary and middle school principal turned childcare center owner and educational leadership coach. And, I’m here to help you move out of “stress and fear” mode and into purpose-driven impact.
But first… let’s address the elephant in the room.
School change is hard! Too often, well-intentioned leaders bring great ideas to their schools and unintentionally make things worse. Sometimes a lot worse.
I know it! After more than 20 years leading early childhood through eighth grade schools & teaching, teaching doctoral students in education, and writing two books on educational leadership , I opened my own childcare center & preschool. Through my career, I've seen my share of the good . . . the bad . . . the ugly . . . and the catastrophic. And, I've developed an approach to dramatically dramatically improve quality of learning & care in schools, with less stress & more joy.
