"I believe in the transformative role that a school leader can play in positively impacting the lives of students on a large scale."

Emily Katz - Assistant Principal of Instruction, Mastery - Frederick Douglass

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I believe in the transformative role that a school leader can play in positively impacting the lives of students on a large scale. As a school leader, I hope to maximize my impact in fostering an environment of excellence and achievement for students in Philadelphia schools.

Prior to the residency, I taught in Philadelphia for six years teaching math and science at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School and science at Frederick Douglass. During my tenure at these schools, I cultivated a structured, rigorous classroom environment that promoted academic success. I have also worked as an Instructional Coach to support instruction and teacher development at Frederick Douglass. Additionally, I have lead Professional Learning Communities for Teach for America and served as a curriculum writer for Scholar Academies.
