Our Residents

"The intensive summer program, coaching, support from residents in the cohort and extensive real-life training prepares future leaders to make a positive impact right away in even the most challenging schools. "

Kimberly Stokes - Assistant Principal, First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I am committed to the students and families of Philadelphia. I feel that the coaching, data analysis, collaboration and hands-on experience I will receive as a resident will give me the ability to make decisions, problem solve, and set clear, attainable goals that strongly impact student achievement.

Prior to the Residency, I had 16 years of instructional experience. As the RtIL Chairperson (Response to Intervention and Instruction) at my current school, I have been able to effectively use data to implement programming and interventions for students who are struggling, in order to accelerate their rate of learning. In my current role as a reading specialist, I have coached teachers, provided professional development, led parent workshops, and presented at the Pennsylvania Department of Education Annual Conference and the Pennsylvania Coalition of Charter Schools 2006 Annual Conference.
