"PhillyPLUS presents an invaluable opportunity for prospective leaders in education to expand their knowledge-base, network among like-minded professionals, and refine their governing lens."

Michael Rombola - Academy Director, Global Leadership Academy

I chose to become a PLUS resident because it presents an invaluable opportunity for prospective leaders in education to expand their knowledge-base, network among like-minded professionals, and refine their governing lens. Through real-world application and the opportunity to receive consistent critical feedback, participants are afforded an extensive training experience, and therein primed to secure transformational leadership roles within the Philadelphia School System.  

Prior to residency, I spent three years employed as an Adult Literacy Director and Job Coach working exclusively with welfare recipients in West and Southwest Philadelphia. Soon after, I attended the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education and taught for five consecutive years at Global Leadership Academy Charter School within 1st and 2nd Grade classrooms. This past year, I transitioned out of the classroom while being promoted to Academy Lead for the K-2 small-learning community. As a teacher-coach and mentor, an essential goal has been to promote a school climate that fosters a thriving and engaged work environment predicated on the following principles: dedication and diligence, affability and integrity, networking, community outreach, and cultural acceptance.
