Chad, Instructional coach - Salem-Keizer Public Schools, Oregon

Elena has helped us create a highly functional framework for addressing issues around equity and inclusion in our school. Her positive, affirming coaching sets the tone for generous collaboration and her deft management of logistics keeps us on track to accomplish our goals.

Suzanne Forrest, Assistant Head for Academics - Urban School, San Francisco

Elena created an almost instant rapport with our group of 85 people. Her warmth and passion were infectious and she established an incredibly safe learning environment for us to take risks in so that we could improve our coaching skills. This was a workshop that will transform my work.

Learning Consultant - Catapult, Dallas, TX

Elena's keynote and workshops were practical and spectacular. Her engaging manner, relevant examples, and energizing exercises were exactly what we were looking for. She was an excellent facilitator for our group of school administrators. I would recommend her to any group of education leaders.
