Professional Educational Consultant



Lynne Little, EdD - Educational Consultant

I have enjoyed a career in education that spans more than 25 years. Over the years, I have had opportunities to work in early childhood, to work as an elementary classroom teacher, a high school teacher, and an adjunct college instructor.  I spent numerous years working as a school administrator serving as an elementary principal, and working as an academic dean covering curriculum, credentialing, testing, and accreditation. I have an understanding and appreciation for the structure of K12 Christian schools and the administrative burden for particularly smaller to mid-sized schools.  In these schools, there is no multi-faceted admin construct. There are a handful of folks making all things happen.  This is the reason Compass Education LLC exists! Compass Education's mission is to support schools in their season of need.  When a school requires a level of expertise in curriculum, policy, accreditation, or professional development, Compass Education contracts to assist and support for "such a time as this."


Professional Development Workshops


What’s Being Said

I can say without reservation that Lynne Little is the most skilled and professional educator I have worked with in my 20-year career.  She possesses a rare combination of pedagogical skill and administrative insight, and her ability to lead schools in research, data-driven decision making, and professional development is exemplary.   Beyond her considerable professional skill set, Lynne possesses great character, true intellectual humility, and a servant’s heart.  I can think of no better resource for any school in need of consulting services or professional development.

Dr. Dustin Williams - Elementary Principal

Providence Academy - Johnson City, TN

As a school, we had lofty ideas without a clear plan for implementation, which means we were adrift in a sea of good intentions. Enter Lynne Little and Compass Education.  Lynne's clear understanding of the challenges Christian schools face combined with practical hands-on experience has proved invaluable to our development as a school.  We are now more focused with a clear plan to move to the next stage of improvement. Lynne Little's passionate professionalism combined with a deep love for Christian educators makes her a unique asset to the Christian school movement.  I could not recommend Compass Education more highly.

Dr. Shane Arnold - Head of School

Christ's Legacy Academy - Athens, TN

We had the privilege of working with Dr. Lynne Little and Compass Education on an accreditation project for our school. She was very professional, compassionate, attentive, and helped us get through a months-long project successfully. I highly recommend Lynne and would contract with her again without question.

Jason Miller - All-School Principal

Hamilton Heights Christian Academy, Chattanooga, TN

As board members, we have a passion to support the mission and vision of our school. However, it is a challenge to do that practically as many of us have professional backgrounds outside of education that do not always translate. Lynne Little at Compass Education helped our board in practical ways such as walking through strategic planning, helping us with documents and defining best practices. When Lynne did not know the answer, she found it. 
She was also a pleasure to work with and her passion for Christ-centered quality education shines!
