Principal, Bache-Martin Elementary School
School District of Philadelphia
2018 Neubauer Fellow

“I serve as a principal because I believe that providing a quality education for children is the most important contribution that I can make to my city. A quality education provides children opportunity.”

Mark has served as the principal of Bache-Martin Elementary School since 2014. Under Mark’s leadership, the school grew the percent of K-2 students who are on target for literacy and reduced the percent of students scoring below basic in literacy by 5% in academic years 2016-17 and 2017-18. Recently, the School District of Philadelphia Neighborhood Network 3 recognized Bache-Martin’s steady increased achievement on all subject sections on the PSSA.


Mark has been an educator since 2006. Prior to becoming a principal, Mark served as a middle school social studies and ELA teacher and 7th grade lead teacher. Mark grew up in Newark and Summit, New Jersey.
