Peg Portscheller is the President of Portscheller & Associates: Pathways to Results. Pathways to Results is an education consulting firm dedicated to providing training, mentoring, performance coaching, audits and on-site support to educators and education systems around the country.
She previously served as the Chief Learning Officer for the Leadership and Learning Center, a nationally renowned education consulting and publishing company based in Denver and Boston. In that capacity, Peg oversaw 50 consultants and the work they do with school districts across the country.
Peg has a breadth and depth of education leadership experience that is unequaled. She is one of the few educators in the country who has been both a union leader, serving as a state president for two terms, and a superintendent. In her tenure as both a teacher and a superintendent, Peg boasts “educator of the year” and “superintendent of the year” honors.
In the course of her “almost four decades” in education, Peg has taught at the middle and high school levels as well as in the higher education arena. In addition, she has rich experiences in leadership, curriculum, instruction, staff development, assessment and data, and system reform. She served for 15 years as a member of the board of McREL (Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning) and led their policy work during the reauthorization of the federal No Child Left Behind act. Peg also served as the Executive Director of the Colorado Association of School Executives and as the Executive in Residence at Adams State in Colorado.
Peg is a skilled presenter, facilitator, coach, speaker and trainer. She has been active in the profession at all levels including having served as the state affiliate ASCD president in two different states as well as serving as a leader in Phi Delta Kappa, the American Association of University Women, and the American Association of School Administrators.
Peg has also done work with Microsoft, CTB McGraw Hill, Scholastic, Quizdom, Collaborative Learning, Dell, Pearson, the Center for College and Career Readiness and other companies who work in the field of education.
Peg’s consulting work focuses on aspects of school improvement…from curriculum/instruction/personnel/implementation audits to conflict resolution to strategic planning facilitation to keynotes to teacher/administrator training.
Her experiences in very diverse school systems give her credibility with all audiences and groups, and her warmth and sense of humor put people at ease while inviting them to explore new possibilities. As Peg puts it, “This is first and foremost a ‘business’ of the heart. When the heart is engaged, the mind can deal with changes that need to be made in service to kids.”
