"I believe that through the rigorous training of the PhillyPLUS residency, I will gain the skills and ability to transform the educational and life trajectories of my students."

Lauren Tuene - Assistant Principal of Instruction, Mastery - Hardy Williams

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I am committed to the students of Philadelphia and believe that through the rigorous training of the PhillyPLUS residency, I will gain the skills and ability to transform the educational and life trajectories of my students. As a school leader, I will work to empower teachers, invest community members in the power of education, and ensure that all students are given the opportunity to excel.

Prior to the residency, I was a Teach for America corps member and taught for three years at Discovery Charter School. During that time, I received an M.Ed. in Urban Education from the University of Pennsylvania.The following year, I joined the Grover Cleveland Mastery Charter School turnaround team and served as the founding eighth-grade literacy teacher. There, I led my students to significant gains on Pennsylvania’s statewide reading test and also served as the eighth-grade team lead. I became interested in becoming a school leader when I served as a corps member advisor during Teach for America’s Summer Institute. It was through this role that I was able to recognize my impact on student achievement through instructional coaching.
