Our Residents

"I chose to join PhillyPLUS because there is a real and urgent need to provide high quality education to the children of Philadelphia. As a teacher, I was able to positively impact student achievement in my classroom; with the training and coaching provided by PLUS, I’ll be able to impact student achievement on a much broader level."

Kristina Lamia - Principal, Colonial School District

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I believe that every child deserves the very best education. As a PhillyPLUS Resident I will be able to share my passion, knowledge, and dedication with a motivated and determined staff of teachers to positively impact student achievement. 

Prior to the residency, I taught 6th through 8th grade Autistic Support at Universal Creighton Charter School. I was able to transform an underperforming classroom to a successful place where students were able to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. While serving as an Autistic Support teacher I was also Universal Creighton’s After-School Program Coordinator. I was responsible for working with grant partners to secure funding to run a Comprehensive After-School Program that served over 250 students in grades 1-8. Universal Creighton’s After-School Program has been extremely successful. I also have experience with lower elementary aged students. My passion is early literacy because getting our K-3 students to read on or above grade level is extremely important to later academic achievement. I am excited and eager to apply my knowledge and experience to the PhillyPLUS Residency.
