Who We Want

Our residents are a diverse set of educators who have at least three years of teaching experience, a passion for helping teachers do their best work, and a deep commitment to the students, families and communities of Kansas City.

There’s no such thing as a typical PLUS resident, but our leaders do share a few key traits: 

Commitment to Excellence: PLUS residents relentlessly pursue excellence—for themselves, their teachers, and their students—as they work to foster a supportive learning environment where teachers succeed and students thrive. They use student data to guide their leadership, encourage a culture of feedback and constant learning, and actively seek out opportunities to grow and improve. 

Instructional Expertise: PLUS residents have a track record of success in the classroom. They know how to challenge and inspire all students, and they have valuable insight and practical advice that will help the teachers they manage do the same.

Strong Leadership Instincts: PLUS residents may not enter the program as expert managers, but they do come with strong skills and instincts for influencing others. They anticipate challenges and solve problems strategically, they motivate others to do excellent work, and they promote an inclusive environment that values all community members and the diverse perspectives they bring.
