Fatihah Abdur-Rahman

I chose to become a CamdenPLUS Resident because urban education is in a state of emergency.  I recognize the sense of urgency to develop lifelong learners that are academically proficient and able to compete in the 21st century.  As an agent of change, I truly believe that all learners, regardless of their ethnicity, gender, or community that they come from, can achieve academically.

Prior to the Residency, my desire for urban education began years ago as an assistant teacher at a Camden Head Start program.  While there, I interacted with students that were performing below their grade level.  I decided to become the change I wanted to see in the world. My passion for learning and love for Camden city students have earned me numerous awards and recognition.  I served as an educator, facilitator, chairperson, mentor, and leader. It is my belief that education equality can and will be achieved for the students of Camden.
