Dr. Andrea B. Nelson

Dr. Andrea B. Nelson has a track record of being a transformational leader in urban school districts with over 25 + years of experience as an elementary, reading coach, curriculum/ professional development specialist, assistant principal, principal, and assistant superintendent of instruction.  


Whenever approached with the task of transforming a low-performing school, she immediately addresses the culture of low expectation by creating a climate for change and student expectation reset. Her standard of excellence with the belief that every child can learn at his/her core addresses all personnel in the building from maintenance teams to her leadership team.  Increasing cultural sensitivity, addressing systemic social barriers, affirming each child as an individual, and applying a disciplined approach to research-based pedagogy have been the keys to her success.
