Christina Legg Greenberg
CEO of Edgility Consulting
In my work, I employ and interact with a number of education consultants and Elana is by far one of the best. She has an deep understanding of effective instruction and pedagogy, an excellent eye for identifying and describing practices that will help adults move student achievement, and is able to balance competing priorities by consistently delivering a high-quality product quickly and on deadline. Elana also has great problem solving skills and is able to multi-task and work in climates of uncertainty, changing course as needed to meet clients' needs.
Founder and CEO of Valor Collegiate Academies
Elana is one of the finest educators that I have worked with. She is exceptional for many reasons, but mostly due to her incredible work ethic, her ability to collaborate with her peers, her leadership skills, and her skill-set for delivering professional development for adults. I trust her completely. Even amongst a group of high achieving, type-A Stanford graduates, Elana stood out as one of the most efficient and hard working faculty members on staff. She is truly a ‘can’t miss’ hire for any organization.
co-founder of East Bay Innovation Academy
Elana understands which practices work and which don't. She pushes back when things don't make sense, and finds a way to bring disparate ideas to together into a cohesive model that reflects research based best practices and education code requirements. She moves from big picture, high-level strategy to tactics without missing a detail. Drawing on her charter school and school reform network, Elana connected us several people who were really helpful and impactful to our work.
