Megan Tschannen-Moran (Ph.D., The Ohio State University) is a Professor of Educational Leadership at the William & Mary School of Education.  Inspired by her fourteen years of experience as the founder and principal of a school serving primarily low-income and minority students in a distressed neighborhood of Chicago, she is motivated to work at the intersection of theory and practice so that schools grow in their capacity to serve all students well. The coaching model presented in this book sits squarely at that intersection. Megan’s scholarly research focuses on relationships of trust in school settings and how these are related to important outcomes such as the collective efficacy beliefs of a school faculty, teacher professionalism, and student achievement.  Her book Trust Matters: Leadership for Successful Schools (2nd Ed.) (2014) reports the experience of three principals and the consequences of their successes and failures to build trust.  Another line of research explores school climate through the Vibrant School Scale that assesses the degree to which a school fosters enlivened minds, emboldened voice, and playful learning.
