Our Residents

"Students thrive in a school where teachers encourage them to take ownership of their learning and hold them to the highest of expectations."

Kelly Thompson - Principal Fellow, HA Brown

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS resident because I believe effective school leaders are a driving force for ensuring that all students have access to a high quality education. It is my goal to cultivate an environment where students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning and held to the highest of expectations, allowing them the opportunity to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.

Prior to the Residency, I began my teaching career as a New York City Teaching Fellow in the South Bronx and Jamaica Queens where I earned a M. Ed in Curriculum and Instruction from St. John’s University. During my tenure, I served as a middle school English Teacher, Teacher Mentor and Literacy Team Leader. Prior to teaching, I worked for a nonprofit organization in Northeast Philadelphia and committed a year of service as an AmeriCorps VISTA in Olney, Philadelphia. It is my honor and privilege to be serving the students and families of Philadelphia once again.
