    Bio below + attached headshot 
    Chanie Wilschanski is an Early Childhood Leadership Coach and CEO of Schools of Excellence where she has worked with hundreds of EC Directors and School Owners who are working to build a School of Excellence with higher staff retention, teacher motivation, parent partnership, and collaborative culture.

     Chanie began her journey over a decade ago, teaching toddlers at the acclaimed Preschool of the Arts in New York City for 8 years until she continued her path into high studies and earned her Masters in EC and Special Education.
     
     In 2015, she started training teachers and school leaders on the HOW part of creating excellence in their schools.
     
     Now a wife and mother of 4, her hands are full and she understands what it takes to lead a large center and have a full-time job at home, and it breaks my heart when I see so many dedicated school leaders sacrificing all of their time with their family and all of their self care (what self care?) to a school that feels like it’s constantly getting away from them.
