"I have been an international educator for over 13 years, and my students inspired me to become a better leader."

Jacquelyn Tisdale - Principal, Ad Prima Schools - Mt. Airy Campus

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment that offers differentiated and student­-centered instruction to meet the needs of every student. I have been an international educator for over 13 years, and my students inspired me to become a better leader.

Prior to the Residency, I taught, planned, designed, and implemented multicultural and equitable STEM curricula in Philadelphia, South Korea, New York, and Washington, DC. I also assisted in the development of academic incentive programs, helping students become more self-­aware on the road to outstanding academic and behavioral performance. I was a New York City supervisor for a Title I Summer Enrichment Program and STEM Director of a middle school. I was also an Academic Advisor for the Philadelphia Freedom Schools for several years, in addition to my recent position as a Mathematics Instructional Specialist. I have specifically worked to support teachers with implementing mathematics in classrooms. During my education journey, I have also been actively involved with the Philadelphia Youth Poetry Movement (PYPM) and Verve Danz Ensemble. I was recently inducted into Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education.
