As a Instructional Empowerment Consultant Faculty Coach, Mrs. Shakira Fetherolf supports rigorous and equitable education for scholars by delivering professional development, supporting PLCs, coaching implementation, modeling lessons, and using current formative and summative data to drive standards-based instruction. Holding herself and her team to the highest of standards with intellectual curiosity, grace and vulnerability is how she travels the path to success.

Before coaching, Mrs. Fetherolf taught in a wide range of environments, from the emotionally disturbed, autistic, and learning-disabled students of District 75 in the South Bronx, to private schools and university-level abroad, as well as public schools in Florida in a variety of neighborhoods. These diverse experiences have led to an informed and widened perspective.

Mrs. Fetherolf began her education at The State University of New York at Albany with a degree in Sociology and then earned a Master’s Degree in Education from Mercy College.
