Our Residents

"PLUS has given me maximum exposure to all aspects of educational leadership. The training has given me skills to cultivate excellence within my entire school community."

Fatima Smith - Principal, Andrew Hamilton School

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I have a desire to help close the achievement and opportunity gap that exists amongst Philadelphia’s young scholars. There is an urgent need to transform the culture of urban education and I wanted to be part of that change.

Prior to the Residency, I taught for the District of Columbia Public schools as an English Language Arts teacher. There I earned the distinction of Capital Commitment Fellow, a prestigious program for the 50 best teacher recruits of the year. I also taught in Brooklyn, NY as a New York City Teaching Fellow. While there I earned a M. Ed in Curriculum and Instruction from St. John’s University.
