"I believe that PhillyPLUS will provide me with the opportunity to continue impacting student achievement on a broader level."

Mark Vitvitsky - Principal, Bache Martin Elementary School

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I am motivated to continue my career as an educator and lead a school in Philadelphia. As a school leader and with the support of PhillyPLUS, I want to broaden my impact on student achievement. I believe that PhillyPLUS will provide me with the opportunity to continue impacting student achievement on a broader level.

Prior to the residency, I taught social studies to 7th and 8th graders at Shaw Middle School while also serving as the curriculum coordinator and a member of the school based leadership team.  For the past four years I have also acted as the 7th grade community leader at Shaw.  In this role I led a team of 6-10 teachers, and together we developed and successfully implemented a behavior management system. Implementation of this behavior management system led to more instruction-focused classrooms and it also drastically reduced the number of serious incidents occurring at Shaw, resulting ultimately in Shaw's removal from the "persistently dangerous schools" list.
