Our Residents

"I believe Catholic schools need strong leaders."

Colleen McKenzie - Assistant Principal, IMS - DePaul

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I believe Catholic schools need strong leaders.

Prior to the Residency, I taught second and third grade at the DePaul Catholic School. While teaching, I successfully implemented blended learning and supported 100 percent of scholars to meet RIT goals in math, doubling the national average. Additionally, I served as Teacher Leader for a team of six teachers, whose classrooms grew in the 98th and 99th percentiles. I served as Site Manager for Springboard Collaborative, where our scholars averaged 4.1 months of reading growth in five weeks with 97 percent attendance rate at weekly parent workshops. In 2014-2015, I was a member of KIPP’s Emerging Leaders Program.
