About Me

Shana started her education career as a middle school math and science teacher placed in Oakland, California by Teach for America. She left sunny California in 2003 for the opportunity to be an instructional coach in NYC. After 4 years of supporting teachers in content and pedagogy, she moved into a network position supporting school administrators in city accountability measures, curriculum, and instructional technology. More recently, the call to innovate has lured Shana into the space of educational innovation- supporting schools for the past 3 years in school redesign to personalize learning for students. She currently serves as Deputy Executive Director of iZone360, co-leading a passionate team of educators as they build professional learning communities, create and manage school innovation challenges, and develop robust systems for knowledge management in order to scale and diffuse promising practices and processes. Shana is a bit of a workaholic, as she believes that the need to rethink traditional educational paradigms has never been so urgent and critical.
