Lorraine Greenfield is a faculty member and currently the interim director of
the STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Division in the
Graduate School of Education. She brings over 25 years as a public school
educator, middle school principal, and superintendent.Students in Lesley's Curriculum and Instruction Master's program are usually
in-service teachers interested in pursuing a high-level program, perhaps moving
beyond their comfort level and challenging themselves to become problem
solvers. "As a group, the students are really interested in leadership.
They take what they've learned in the program and try to inform their
colleagues to help schools raise the standard. My work is about helping the
students understand how children learn and how they as teachers teach. Merging
these two needs is the greatest challenge, but also the greatest reward."
Dr. Greenfield has mentored women educators and developed a support
organization for them. In 1990 there were four female superintendents in
Massachusetts; now there are over 30.
Dr. Greenfield now teaches pre-service students
