After studying finance at the University of Pennsylvania, Christiana went into the private equity field. She learned everything she could about how to best run a company, and then started looking for an education organization she could support. Success Academy fit the bill, and it’s a place where she’s thrilled to be making a difference.
Working with teachers to help their students succeed, Christiana uses data, including classwork grades, homework, and test assessments, to pinpoint areas for improvement. She also manages her school’s special education program, ensuring students with special needs get the extra support and intervention plans they require. She loves that every day she is working to make sure students are set up for success.
“My favorite thing about the culture here is that everyone really strives for excellence. There is no sense of complacency. Whenever someone hits a really good goal, they immediately start thinking about how they can get even better. It’s amazing to see what comes from that constant search for improvement.”
“Because Success Academy is growing at such a fast rate, there’s a lot of opportunity to move up professionally and develop your career. Senior leaders are always looking for opportunities for successful members of their team to enter into new roles or forge ahead in new areas.”
