About the Author:

Ellie Drago-Severson is a Professor of Education Leadership and Adult Learning & Leadership at Teachers College, Columbia University. As a developmental psychologist, her work is inspired by the idea that schools must be places where adults and children can grow. She is dedicated to creating the conditions to achieve this and to helping leaders and educators of all kinds to do the same on behalf of supporting adults and youth. Ellie’s work builds bridges between research and practice by supporting teachers, principals, superintendents and other school and district leaders in their professional and personal development and growth. Ellie is author of four recent books: Becoming Adult Learners: Principles and Practices for Effective Development (Teachers College Press, 2004), Helping Teachers Learn: Principal Leadership for Adult Growth and Development (Corwin Press, 2004), Leading Adult Learning: Supporting Adult Development in our Schools (Corwin/Sage, 2009), and Helping Educators Grow: Practices and Strategies for Supporting Leadership Development (Harvard Education Press, 2012). Learning Forward (formerly The National Staff Development Council, NSDC) awarded the Outstanding Staff Development Book of the Year in 2004 to Helping Teachers Learn, and selected Leading Adult Learning as their book for the Fall 2009. Ellie teaches, conducts research and consults to leaders and organizations on professional and personal growth and learning, leadership that supports principal, faculty and school development, capacity building, leadership development, coaching, qualitative research, and mentoring K–12 schools, university contexts, and ABE/ESOL contexts. She is also an internationally certified developmental coach who works with principals, assistant principals, district leaders, and teachers to build internal capacity and achieve goals. She served as lead researcher on the Adult Development Team of the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy (NCSALL) at Harvard University and as teacher, program designer, program director, and currently as consultant, and professional developer in a variety of educational contexts including K-12 schools, higher education, adult education centers, and ABE/ESOL programs (domestically and internationally). Her work explores the promise of practices that support adult development, leadership development, and capacity building, within schools, districts and across systems. Ellie’s work has been recognized by and supported with awards from the Spencer Foundation, the Klingenstein Foundation, and Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) where she served as Lecturer on Education for eight years. While serving at Harvard, Ellie was awarded the 2005 Morningstar Award for Excellence in Teaching. Most recently, she received three outstanding teaching awards from Teachers College. She has earned degrees from Long Island University (BA) and Harvard University (EdM, EdD and Post-Doctoral Fellowship). Ellie grew up in the Bronx, New York and lives in New York City.

Review:

"Can those who teach in and lead our schools dramatically improve the development of their students without a new commitment to their own ongoing development? Drago-Severson and her co-authors think not. But more than this, they provide an expansively intelligent, intensely practical, research-based route to realizing this new commitment."--Robert G. Kegan, Meehan Professor of Adult Learning and Professional Development (03/25/2013)

"Ellie Drago-Severson is one of our most insightful experts on the development of adult educational leaders. She is unique in her ability to move back and forth comfortably between powerful ideas and promising practices."--Howard Gardner, Professor of Cognition and Education (03/21/2013)

"This is not another book about education reform to be read and cast aside--this is a book to be savored. It contributes profoundly to our understanding about how adults learn, the differences in the ways that adults learn, and how we can support and challenge adults as continuous learners within the context of the school day--a must if we are truly dedicated to improving teaching and learning for every child in every classroom in every school."--Deanna Burney, Executive Director (02/07/2013)

"This book is unique in its approach to bridge theory and practice regarding leadership in our schools. The stories, examples, and vignettes are grounded in the real world of leadership and provide concrete, specific examples."--Jane Ellison, Educational Consultant (02/07/2013)

"This book provides school leaders with the theoretical framework and practical applications to better support teachers' professional growth and learning. The authors teach us how to create meaningful change through the development of a safe, trusting, respectful environment that encourages reflection, collaboration and professional growth within schools. This book will enable educational leaders to understand and overcome resistance to change and will transform the way they facilitate professional development and guide adult learning in schools."--Kara Popiel, Teacher (02/07/2013)

"A powerful new framework for supporting leaders. I see Learning for Leadership becoming the foundation for many leadership development programs. Using the adult learning lens, the authors offer a powerful approach to supporting the development and increasing the impact of school leaders.This will serve as a great reference for educators charged with the responsibility to design leadership development programs that make a difference for the participants as well as their staff and students."--Stephanie Hirsch, Executive Director

"Learning for Leadership brings right to life the experiences school leaders have had as a result of their work with TC's LTL course! Dr. Drago-Severson provides a tremendously active and learning oriented model for school leadership. Her examination of real -life lessons learned from her adult students is action oriented in itself. These testimonies not only focus on how intentionally these leaders implemented their learning from LTL but they also put forth the challenges encountered by these thoughtful leaders as well. Drago-Severson's work has highly influenced the practice of School Leaders Network in school districts across the nation. As Drago-Severson notes: " School leaders " yearn for on-going support" and this book, while clearly illustrating learning, also prescribes critically important lessons for district practice and policy."--Elizabeth Neale, CEO

"Can those who teach in and lead our schools dramatically improve the development of their students without a new commitment to their own ongoing development? Drago-Severson and her co-authors think not. But more than this, they provide an expansively intelligent, intensely practical, research-based route to realizing this new commitment."--Robert G.
