Erica Brentan

An educational consultant with expertise in instructional practice and behavior management, Erica Brentan believes that every student in this country deserves a high-quality education—and that this vision is best realized through comprehensive training that prepares teachers for the complex needs of their students. After working for 15 years as a teacher, coach, and professional development specialist at a range of public, private, and charter schools in the New York City area, she developed a unique perspective on how every school can reach its full potential. With this pursuit in mind, in 2015 she founded School Works, a consultancy that partners with school administrators to equip teachers with the tools they need for success and enhance overall school performance. Her practice is built on a foundation of social/emotional principles, and schools that have partnered with School Works have demonstrated higher student engagement, greater teacher satisfaction, stronger classroom communities, and improved school culture.

Erica holds a BA in Journalism from the University of Maryland College Park, and a Master’s in Education from Pace University in New York City. She has advanced certification in Responsive Classroom and extensive training in cognitive coaching, transformational coaching and cooperative learning.
