Stacey Shells      

Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ReGeneration Schools

Stacey Shells is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of ReGeneration Schools, a charter management organization whose mission is to create strong college prep and performance arts schools. ReGeneration currently serves 1,500 students grades K-8 across three campuses on the south side of Chicago. Over the past two years of turnaround, ReGeneration has increased state test scores 10 percentage points in ELA and 17 percentage points in math despite an over-20 point drop statewide since the introduction of Common Core.

Prior to this, she was the Managing Director for Victory Education Partners in Chicago, IL, and a principal with Uncommon Schools, where she opened two charter schools in Rochester, NY. Under Shell’s leadership, her founding cohort of students at Rochester Prep ranked sixth in the state of NY for English Language Arts in 2008.

Shells is an alumna member of Teach for America, and her work in urban education has been featured in the books Teach Like a Champion, by Doug Lemov, and Leverage Leadership, by Paul Bambrick-Santoyo.
