In Orlando, we’re small but mighty. In The City Beautiful, you’ll have the opportunity to join a group of dedicated individuals transforming education for our students. There’s a certain energy here you can only find in a newer region, and in our second year, we’re continuing to join hands with other educators and families to advocate for students and fight for educational equity. We’re in this together and we’re having fun in the process.
In Orlando, there are a myriad of ways to create positive change. Take Sara Bigalke (Chicago ’04), who’s now principal of the school she attended growing up, Silver Lake Elementary. There’s also Roxanne Vasquez (Chicago ’09), another alum who’s decided to return home to continue to impact students in her eighth year of teaching. We’ve seen 70+ alumni return to our city from other parts of the country, and we can’t wait to see our first class of Orlando alums complete the program this spring.
Orlando provides a thriving downtown experience coupled with community centered main street charm. Our communities are both vibrant and growing, and when you’re not debriefing the day’s lessons with your colleagues at one of our many eclectic restaurants, you can join the crowds at one of the city’s many theme parks – all of your out of town friends and family will want to visit you too.
