“I work at Legacy College Prep because I wanted to be part of a founding team of educators that are committed to creating a responsive Charter School model that prioritizes academic interventions and the needs of students with disabilities. At Legacy College Prep, I know that my voice is valued, and that I have the autonomy I want inside and outside of the classroom. Best of all, with the support of Principal Summer Schneider and the rest of the Legacy College Prep team, I’ve finally been able to achieve a work life balance, without sacrificing student achievement! “

“I work at LCP, because I am passionate about working with children. In a community where there aren’t many opportunities for children to advance and grow academically, Legacy Prep fills that void. I love the fact that Legacy Prep not only provides a good quality education to children in a low income area, but is also preparing scholars for college as well.”

“I work at Legacy College Prep because I wanted to be part of a team that believes every student has the opportunity to pursue his or her dream. Being a Bronx-Native Latina, I have learned that education is crucial; students are deserving of a purposeful education and should not have limited access to such. Here at LCP students are able to receive the education they deserve despite their background and have a staff that is motivated and passionate about making a difference in their lives.”
