Our Residents

"I plan to empower teachers to build relationships with students, improve their craft, monitor student data, and partner with parents and other educators to improve student outcomes."

Gabriel Tuffs - Principal Fellow, Lankenau High School

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I believe that Philadelphia needs compassionate, dedicated, and insightful leaders to reduce the achievement gap and provide Philadelphia’s students with quality teaching and safe and nurturing schools. I plan to empower teachers to build relationships with students, improve their craft, monitor student data, and partner with parents and other educators to improve student outcomes.

Prior to the Residency, I taught high school Social Studies for nine years. In 2010, I spearheaded an Anti-Bully program at Edison High School in Philadelphia. At Brooklyn Prospect Charter School, my students passed the New York State Global Regents exam at rates 20% higher than the New York City average, and I served as the 10th Grade Level leader. I also founded Model United Nations Programs at both Brooklyn Prospect and the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts.
