About Chanel

Chanel Ward holds a Masters of Science in Education from the University of Pennsylvania. Chanel developed an interest in education as an undergraduate when attending school at Barnard College of Columbia University, which propelled her to join Teach for America's as an elementary school teacher in 2008 within the city of Philadelphia. By the end of her second year teaching, Chanel was chosen as one of Teacher for America's regional nominees for the Sue Lehmann Excellence in Teaching Award.

Upon completing her two-year commitment with Teach for America in 2010, Chanel worked at Young Scholars Fredrick Douglass Elementary School, where she joined the efforts of Scholar Academies as a teacher, instructional coach, and curriculum writer to turnaround the school.

In 2012, Chanel was recruited by Mastery Charter Schools to become a school leader. Chanel is currently an Assistant Principal of Mastery Charter Thomas Elementary, a K-6 school serving the greater South Philadelphia neighborhood. Chanel founded the school in 2013. The school has since developed a reputation within Philadelphia, notably within South Philadelphia, for its exceptional academic program and robust student life experience.

Chanel has recently developed an interest in private tutoring, driven by an interest in working with students in a smaller, more intimate setting.
