Life in the City

With many universities and colleges in the area, there is always plenty to do in the City of Brotherly Love. ACE Teachers can take in the arts, culture, and rich history that attract over 41 million domestic tourists each year. You might also find them enjoying the outdoor sculptures and murals, of which Philly has more than any other American city.

Why did you say "yes" to serving children in Catholic schools through ACE?

My own experience attending a Catholic high school was transformational both spiritually and intellectually. Saying "yes" to ACE gives me the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the extraordinary teachers who gave me that Catholic school experience while living in the fellowship of an intentional Christian community.

Why did you say "yes" to serving children in Catholic schools through ACE?

Every child deserves a chance and a champion, and I believe Catholic education cultivates the ideal environment for providing students with this. I'm excited to serve in a school that prioritizes development of the whole child alongside student success and empowerment.

If you had to pick just one word to describe your ACE experience so far, what would it be (and why)?

Empowering; As a classroom teacher, you truly have the power to effect change in children's lives. But as the saying goes: "With great power comes great responsibility." Our work in ACE is not to be taken lightly — it is a calling that requires our very best effort and consideration.
