"I have dedicated my career to improving education in underserved communities and I know that PLUS can help expand and improve my impact."

Elana Galli - Principal Fellow, Cayuga Elementary

I chose to become a PLUS resident because I have dedicated my career to improving education in underserved communities and I know that PLUS can help expand and improve my impact.

Prior to residency, I served Young Scholars Kenderton Charter School as the Chief of Staff helping to lead 60 staff members in the turnaround of one of Philadelphia’s most struggling K- 8 elementary schools. In that capacity, I managed all non-instructional aspects of the building helping to raise enrollment from 440 to 540 and attendance from 91% to 93%. I worked as the school’s founding Manager of Student Life during its inaugural year and among other things aided in the acceptance of 40% of 8th graders into competitive college-prep high schools in YSK’s first year of turnaround.

Before becoming a school leader, I began my career in the Washington, D.C. region as a Teach For America corps member teaching Middle School Social Studies in Prince George’s County as well as KIPP DC WILL Academy. While I miss being in the classroom and having that dedicated time with my students, I enjoy driving student achievement from a broader scope and look forward to the invaluable experience I will gain as a PhillyPLUS resident.
