Elizabeth City

Senior Lecturer on Education; Faculty Director, Doctor of Education Leadership Program

Elizabeth City has served as a teacher, instructional coach, principal, and consultant, in each role focused on helping all children, and the educators who work with them, realize their full potential. City fell in love with teaching in a closet-turned-classroom in St. Petersburg, Russia. She still loves teaching, and sees leadership as a continuous act of learning and teaching. From her early passion for adolescent literacy as a middle school Humanities teacher to her current work in developing leaders, common themes in City's work are collaboration, discussion, asking the right questions, thinking and acting strategically, and learning through doing. City's recent work in the field includes supporting instructional rounds networks, developing a statewide induction program for new superintendents, and helping to cultivate personalized learning across rural districts and schools.

She has authored/coauthored many publications, recently including Meeting Wise: Making the Most of Collaborative Time for Educators (2014) and Data Wise, Revised and Expanded Edition: A Step-by-Step Guide to Using Assessment Results to Improve Teaching and Learning (2013).
