MacDonald, Elisa

Elisa B. MacDonald works with leaders and their teams to achieve the best possible outcomes for all learners.  She is the author of the bestselling book, The Skillful Team Leader: A Resource for Overcoming Hurdles to Professional Learning for Student Achievement.  She has thirty years of combined experience in education as a teacher, literacy coach, Assistant Principal of Teaching and Learning, and National Director of Teacher Leader Development, and, currently, as a consultant.  Elisa loves designing and implementing training and development for team leaders and those who support them.  More than a program, her customized courses, workshops and coaching empower teachers, coaches and school leaders to take a skillful intentional approach to leading collaborative learning.  She also consults with individual teams (typically district and school leadership teams) who desire to improve and deepen their collaboration.  When she isn’t championing teams and their leaders, she is onstage acting, running her twins to soccer and theater, or experimenting in the kitchen pretending she’s on the Food Network.
