"I believe that every student in our city deserves a great teacher. I believe that as an educator, I can have the most impact in closing the achievement gap by working with teachers to set a high bar for students, set clear goals, and establish rigorous and engaging lessons to drive to instruction and lead to success for students."

Shanna Teschner - Assistant Principal, Mastery - Clymer

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I want to be provided with the skills and experience to support teachers and increase student outcomes in the city in which I grew up. I believe that every student in our city deserves a great teacher. I believe that as an educator, I can have the most impact in closing the achievement gap by working with teachers to set a high bar for students, set clear goals, and establish rigorous and engaging lessons to drive to instruction and lead to success for students.

Prior to Residency, I taught for seven years within charter schools in Philadelphia. I have been a facilitator of planning meetings and professional development sessions that have focused on collaborate planning for teachers, implementing effective literacy strategies, and using data to drive instruction. I have also had the pleasure of leading Professional Learning Communities among staff with the focus of race and identity, and its impact in the classroom.
