Karen Reynolds has served as an organizational consultant and facilitator to businesses and schools for over 20 years. While working with MRSH, she has coached teams and principals in large inner city, suburban, and rural districts across the United States. She specializes in helping administrators and school leadership teams design and guide the improvement efforts in their schools. She also works individually with principals as they lead their schools through changes and transitions. She currently serves as the lead facilitator in the federally funded research initiative: Systems Leadership in Middle Schools. Over the course of twenty years, Reynolds grew to understand school improvement issues from a variety of perspectives: as a classroom teacher, an administrator at both the elementary and secondary level, and, finally as a central office administrator.
