Nicole Almanzar

I chose to become a Camden PLUS resident because I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership. I believe Camden PLUS will provide the support, guidance, and resources to further elevate my role as an educational leader in an urban setting, which is an environment that I am devoted to serving.  As a Camden PLUS resident, I will be influential to other teachers and encourage them to make significant decisions that will benefit their students. 

As an educator who has been teaching in the Camden City School District for over 15 years, I have evolved from a classroom teacher to an instructional leader.  Over the years my students have continuously shown academic growth in the classroom. Also, I have witnessed their social and emotional gains with being part of the Classroom Champions program. I was appointed as grade-level chair over 10 years ago and since then, my leadership roles have progressed to other school-wide areas such as serving on the School Improvement Committee and the Instructional Leadership Team. These roles have allowed me to contribute to my school’s vision and goals, collaborate with other school and instructional leaders, and create and lead our teaching staff in workshops to improve their instructional practices.
