Betsy Warren has worked in the field of education for thirty years. As a classroom teacher she taught grades 6-12 in four states. She was a teacher leader active in both local and state levels of teacher association activities. After completing her Masters degree in School Administration, she worked as district coordinator of curriculum and staff development. She went on to become a site level administrator where, she confesses, she learned more about herself, schools, and systems than she ever imagined possible. Betsy currently serves as outreach coordinator for the New Teacher Center working with the CLASS Team’s New Administrator Project. She also presents professional development seminars for new and veteran administrators. Betsy is a recipient of the Women Leaders in Education Leadership Award and a recent nominee for the Excellence in Education Award sponsored by the Office of the Mayor of San Jose.
