Lucy West has been a mover and shaker in the world of education for over 30 years. Since the mid-nineties Ms. West has been at the forefront of the movement to increase classroom discourse and infuse it with rigor and equity. Ms. West began her career in New York City Public Schools as a second grade teacher. Later, while serving the city as the Director of Mathematics for Community School District 2, Lucy invented a capacity building process for cultivating teacher leaders and highly-skilled mathematics coaches that was the inspiration for other coaching initiatives in districts as far reaching as Boston and San Diego. As the Deputy Superintendent of Region 9 in NYC (a Region serving close to 200 schools), she designed systems to scale up the coaching model she had crafted for District 2 and brokered collaborations that brought universities into partnership with the Region. Her partnership work with Bank Street College resulted in bringing dozens of highly-skilled teachers into the South Bronx-- one of the nation’s poorest “hard-to- staff” congressional districts. Lucy also served as a teacher supervisor with a Columbia University Professional Development School, an instructor within Bank Street College, and an Assistant Principal of PS 234 (one of NYC’s most successful and acclaimed schools).

Lucy is a nationally known speaker on professional development practices, a master mathematics coach, author, and is the founder and Director of Metamorphosis Teaching Learning Communities

Lucy is also the author of Adding Talk To The Equation, and co-author of Content-Focused Coaching, and Agents Of Change
