"I am determined to provide students in Philadelphia, regardless of race or zip code, with an excellent education."

Luke Hostetter - Principal, Baldi Middle School

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I am determined to provide students in Philadelphia, regardless of race or zip code, with an excellent education. After working in Philadelphia for five years I am frustrated by the lack of change and the failure of leadership. The PhillyPLUS program will develop my educational leadership skills to support teachers and transform student lives.

Prior to the residency, I worked in Philadelphia schools for five years: first at John Bartram High School and the last two years at KIPP DuBois as a grade level chair and AP US and US History teacher. My students have made significant gains in their writing and literacy skills. Additionally, I strive to have my students engaged in social justice and leadership; to constantly examine the world, the country and their communities.
