Our Residents

"PLUS pairs you with a strong Mentor Principal and Coach to implement skills and tools in real time and in real life situations."

Todd Kimmel - Principal, Hackett Elementary

I choose to become a PhillyPLUS Resident because I believe that every child deserves a high quality education regardless of where they live. As a Philadelphia native I am committed to the students of our great city.

Prior to the residency, I served in the United States Navy before deciding to become a teacher. I started out as a Special Education teacher in Bucks County but chose to come to Philadelphia because I realized I could make a greater impact on students’ educational opportunities. In addition to teaching Special Education, I have also taught 2nd and 5th grade students. I piloted a new literacy program and because of my students' success with the program I was selected to present at the I.R.A. conference. I have also served as the PFT Building Representative.
