Our Residents

"If you are willing to lead differently and embrace the inherent growth that comes with being uncomfortable, PLUS affords you a safe space to do just that."

Shoshana Tyler - Principal, Global Leadership Academy

I chose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because every child, regardless of zip code or socioeconomic status, deserves a high quality educational experience – one that is both academically rigorous and culturally relevant. Our schools demand transformative leaders committed to building teacher capacity, developing student-centered systems, and producing sustainable results. 

Prior to the Residency, I earned Bachelor and Master degrees from the University of Pennsylvania before serving as a classroom teacher and administrator for five and three years, respectively. I empowered students toward significant gains on Pennsylvania achievement tests, earning Teacher of the Year and a nomination for the Sue Lehmann Award for Excellence in Teaching. As a curriculum coordinator, I led a team of ten teachers to develop and launch an early literacy initiative, yielding the highest percentage of kindergarten scholars reading on grade level in school history.
