"I have become passionate about seeing the overall success of children in the urban environment since I started teaching in Philadelphia in 2010."

Jonathan M.J. Dinkens - Apprentice School Leader, Independence Charter School West

I chose to become a PLUS Resident because I want to make a larger impact within the urban community of Philadelphia, beyond my classroom setting. I have become passionate about seeing the overall success of children in the urban environment since I started teaching in Philadelphia in 2010. 

Prior to the residency, I worked in Colonial School District for two years in special education. After that, I spent six years teaching fourth and fifth grade mathematics and language arts within the Mastery Charter Schools network. By my fifth year with Mastery, I had some of the highest proficiency scores in the whole network for math. During my tenure as a teacher with Mastery Charter Schools, I also served as a teacher mentor, workshop facilitator, and teacher liaison for the Parent Association.
