Our Residents

"I joined Kansas City PLUS to step up to the plate to restructure education in my city, to increase my capacity to be an instructional leader, to develop relationships for networking and advice."

Shanelle Smith - Instructional Methods Coach, Southeast High School

I chose to become a PLUS Resident because I believe that school districts needs progressive people to affect real, sustainable change. If I am going to be a part of that work, I have to continue to grow and learn. In this way, my leadership results not only in school transformation, but community building and social revitalization through the impact of education. 

Prior to the PLUS Residency, I worked as a English Language Arts teacher at two charter schools in Kansas City, Missouri. Currently, I am the Academic Dean at Southeast High School and serve as a Methods Instructor for the Kansas City Teacher Residency Program.
