Our Residents

"I want to contribute to the sustained success of both (Philadelphia's young people and schools) while learning and growing as a leader."

Tom Szczesny - Principal Fellow, Mayfair

I chose to become a PLUS resident because Philadelphia’s young people and Philadelphia’s schools personify tremendous possibility everyday, and I want to contribute to the sustained success of both while learning and growing as a leader.

Prior to the residency, I have devoted the last eight years to Philadelphia education. For five years, I taught English and Social Studies at South Philadelphia and Ben Franklin High Schools. For the previous three years, I have studied education from other vantages. During that time, I have mentored novice teachers, conducted research, assisted schools with curriculum development and implementation, and engaged the city’s OST system
