Our Residents

"In order for students to succeed they need strong teachers, and in order for strong teachers to succeed we need strong instructional leaders."

Isobel Dewey - STEM Director, Mastery Simon Gratz

I chose to become a PLUS resident for the same reason I chose to become an educator: the opportunity to support and serve Philadelphia’s students along with their schools and communities. In order for students to succeed they need strong teachers, and in order for strong teachers to succeed we need strong instructional leaders. 

Prior to the residency, I taught science for five years at Simon Gratz High School in Philadelphia.  During my time at Gratz I also served as a Teacher Leader, providing professional development and content specific support, as well as a cultural context facilitator charged with leading my peers through self-reflective discussion. Last year I was a founding teacher for the STEM Honors program and was proud to help create our first ever 9th grade engineering class.
