Expert Guests Dr. Richard Elmore is the Gregory R. Anrig Professor of Educational Leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. For the past fifteen years his research and clinical practice has concentrated on the improvement of instructional practice in schools and classrooms, and the development of organizational systems to support those improvements. His current work focuses on the fundamental re-design of learning environments, and the development of leaders and entrepreneurs to create and sustain those environments, all in light of dramatic changes in our understanding of the neuroscience of learning and the exponential growth of digital culture. He was founding faculty director of the Doctor of Educational Leadership (Ed.L.D.) program at Harvard and recently designed and taught an on-line course through Harvard X, Leaders of Learning, with an international enrollment of more than 60,000 learners.

Facilitated by Dr. Nancy Gutierrez, Ed.L.D., Vice President of District Leadership Support, NYC Leadership Academy. As VP for District Leadership Support, Nancy oversees all national services and programming related to building the capacity of current and aspiring district leaders. Nancy’s previous work and commitment to the empowerment of under-resourced communities came from experiencing the low expectations placed on the children in her disenfranchised Latino neighborhood. Already committed to social justice, Nancy returned to her home community to teach, later founding a new, small, autonomous school that remains the highest performing middle school in the district and a California Distinguished School. Nancy then accepted the opportunity to lead the lowest performing middle school in the district, located only two blocks from her childhood home. Nancy is a graduate of the inaugural cohort of the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s (HGSE) Doctor of Education Leadership (Ed.L.D.) program and completed her doctoral capstone with the New York City Department of Education where she studied the school-to-central leadership transition.
