Kelsey McLachlan
New Orleans Leadership Coach

Kelsey is responsible for direct coaching of Fellows, session delivery, and relationship development in the Greater New Orleans region. Her education career began in Chicago Public Schools where she taught for six years. For five of those years, she taught at a school in Chicago where students hailed from 32 different countries and natively spoke 40 different languages. Her efforts resulted in consistent, significant academic gains for her students.

After teaching in the classroom, Kelsey worked for Teach for America (Greater New Orleans) as a Manager of Teacher Leadership Development (MTLD). For the past five years, Kelsey was the Founding Assistant Principal at KIPP Leadership Primary. Kelsey has a M.S. Ed from Northwestern University and a B.A. from Tulane. When she’s not coaching Fellows, Kelsey loves exploring the many wonders of New Orleans with her husband and two sweet children.
