Dr. Alisa R. McLean
Instructor of Education





Dr. Alisa McLean, an instructor for both, Master’s and Doctoral level courses, came to High Point University in the fall of 2011. A former teacher, coach, reading specialist, director of an Alternative School, Assistant Principal (elementary, middle and high), and Principal (middle and high), she received her doctoral degree in Educational Leadership (Ed.D.) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2009.

Prior to serving as the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction in the Alamance-Burlington School System, Dr. McLean worked as an Assistant Director for the Principals’ Executive Program (PEP), an agency appointed by the General Assembly, specifically designed to provide professional development for principals and assistant principals across the state of North Carolina. There, she had the unique opportunity to work with NC’s neophyte principals (Survival School for New Principals-SSNP), assistant principals aspiring to the principalship (Leadership Program for Aspiring Principals-LPAP), and principals (and their teams) leading low-performing schools (NC Turnaround Program).
