"With the help of PLUS, I’ll develop the leadership expertise necessary to best support teachers."

Holta Tegu - Math Coach, People for People

I chose to become a PLUS Resident because as a teacher who has worked at three different schools, I’ve seen firsthand the importance of good leadership in a school. School leaders shape the educational experiences of not only students, but also the teachers who teach those students. With the help of PLUS, I’ll develop the leadership expertise necessary to best support teachers, thereby maximizing my impact and making a difference on a larger scale. 

Prior to the Residency, I taught mathematics for six years and was nominated for TFA’s Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching. I’ve organized Saturday Academies, Spring Academies, PSSA Prep courses and Algebra I Keystone prep courses. I’ve led Professional Development sessions for staff members on various topics and have worked closely with math teachers to improve their practice. I’ve organized and led many school trips, but the one I’m most proud of was an end-of-year trip to Puerto Rico, taking roughly 40 students two consecutive years.
