Lisa J. Lucas (Ed.D.)
Senior Faculty Member; Founder of LJ Coaching & Consulting LLC
Lisa is currently a Professor in the College of Education at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, and an author, speaker, coach and consultant. She specializes in helping others achieve balance- finding the median between working to live and living to work. With over three decades of experience in education as a teacher, instructional coach, administrator, and consultant she is a life-long educator.
Her workshops are designed to foster reflection and rejuvenation, skills that educators need more of. Lisa’s research focuses on how to cultivate a culture of mindful educators and students. Most recently, she is investigating whether adopting deliberate habits and stress reduction strategies can help educators manage the “overwhelm” and live a more peaceful, productive, and balanced life which will then impact their classroom climate, culture, and students.
Her book, Practicing Presence: Simple Self-Care for Teacher published by Stenhouse Publishers is a compilation of simple self-care strategies, habits and resources for educators at all levels.
