"I chose to become a PLUS resident because I have a burning conviction to broaden my impact."

Latricia Whitfield - Assistant Director for Writing 3-9, Mastery Central Office

I chose to become a PLUS resident because I have a burning conviction to broaden my impact. As a black woman and Philadelphia native, I know how imperative it is to be enrolled in an academic institution that is dedicated to positive racial identity development, student achievement, and a solid foundation within the community. Being a resident allows me to bring that dire transformation into fruition.

Prior to the Residency, I worked in the Philadelphia education system for 5 years, leading students to significant gains in all threads of literacy. During my tenure as a teacher, I have been actively involved with post-graduate research and building staff and students’ cultural competencies around race school wide.
