Our Residents

"PLUS provides excellent professional development centered on effective instructional leadership. The cohort model also provides a group of peer leaders you can turn to for advice, guidance, and support."

Paula Furman - Principal, AMY at James Martin

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because as a career teacher in the Philadelphia City School district, I have seen first hand the positive impact a strong instructional leader can have on individual students, staff and the school community as a whole. From my first day as a teacher, I knew my career goal was to move into a leadership role within the Philadelphia school system. 

Prior to the Residency, I was a special education teacher for eleven years. I also served as my school’s SEL, a member of the RTII team, Building Committee, and Leadership Team. It has been my pleasure, and my privilege, to serve our students and families.
