"I serve as a principal in Philadelphia because I aspire to be a change agent working with like-minded individuals in building a task force of leaders who will provide high quality learning opportunities for every child who calls Philadelphia home. I became a Neubauer Fellow to learn from others and continue growing as an educational leader."
