Ellen Moir is founder and chief executive officer of New Teacher Center (NTC), a national organization dedicated to improving student learning by accelerating the effectiveness of new teachers and school leaders. She is recognized as a passionate advocate for new teachers and for the students they teach.
She founded NTC in 1998 to scale high quality teacher induction services to a national audience. Today she oversees a staff of more than 150 who work closely with educators and policy makers nationwide. NTC seeks to work in high-poverty schools in underserved communities to ensure that low-income, minority, and English language learners—those students most often taught by inexperienced teachers—have the opportunity to receive an excellent education.
Ellen is widely recognized for her work in beginning teacher development and school reform. She has extensive experience in public education, having previously served as director of teacher education at the University of California at Santa Cruz, and worked as a bilingual teacher.
She has received a number of awards, including the 2015 Mary Utne O’Brien Award for Excellence in Expanding the Evidence-Based Practice of Social and Emotional Learning, the 2015 California Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (CASCD) Outstanding Instructional Leader award, and the 2014 Brock International Prize in Education.
Ellen is coauthor of many publications, including Keys to the Classroom and Keys to the Secondary Classroom, New Teacher Mentoring: Hopes and Promise for Improving Teacher Effectiveness, and Blended Coaching: Skills and Strategies to Support Principal Development.
