Karen Anderson is a professional coach and learning facilitator who is passionate about coaching educators to higher levels of performance. Karen’s clients report greater clarity, goal achievement, and improved results for staff and students. One principal reported,

“Student achievement has been impacted by our action teams and our action teams were impacted by our grade levels having serious conversations about the scope and sequence, where we are, where we want to be, and how we will get there? This was an outcome of honest conversation and four good questions that my coach helped me develop.”
