Jessica Gammell, District Partnership Director, Partners in School Innovation

Shane is a principled consultant, with an abiding commitment to equity, excellence and closing the educational opportunity gap. I have had the joy of co-facilitating, along with Shane, many equity centered professional development sessions of her vision and design. She is adept as surfacing the unique needs of each client and creates customized, experiential sessions that link their goals and existing systems with research based frameworks that push their thinking and practice. Shane is skilled at responding to the dynamics of a group and facilitating inclusive processes and strategies to get participants to strategic action.

The brilliance of creation, innovation and historical knowledge Shane shows in PD creation comes through in her coaching as well. In our last year working together, Shane was MY coach and manager! She coached me from a place of care and respect, getting to the heart what was standing in my way, while helping me surface my strengths on which to build greater success. Shane is a hard-working critical thinker who is dedicated to improved outcomes for young people and their families.
