Lisa Quintis, EdD

I am Dr. Lisa Quintis and recently retired from public education after 27 years. I have a master’s degree in elementary reading and literacy, with endorsements in reading and teaching English to students of other languages (TESOL). My doctorate is in teacher leadership with my dissertation focusing on the impact of instructional coaching with teachers. I have experience as a school and district level instructional coach and am currently an instructional coach with a university organization funded through the state department of education. I am a member of the International Literacy Association (ILA) as well as the New Mexico chapter of the ILA and the vice president elect for the state organization. I have presented at the national, state, and district level on topics of literacy instruction and practices. I recently collaborated on an article titled Three Perspectives of Planning, Implementation, and Consistency in Instructional Coaching which was published in Journal of Educational Research and Practice. I have taught on ground campus courses in foundations of educational practices, reading and language arts methodologies, adult education, and online courses for teaching diverse learners. I have had opportunity to work as a subject matter expert in the development of a graduate level course on teacher leadership and an undergraduate level course on instructional practices. I am interested in best practices for classroom instruction, especially in reading and literacy, as well as coaching teachers on strategies and approaches for best instructional practices, professional development on classroom instruction and teacher leadership at the district and school level.
