The School District of Philadelphia’s Teacher for the month of October.
Who is Ms. Reynolds?
“Marcel is an Autistic Support teacher at Frankford High School who, according to her nominator, Principal Michael Calderone, has established herself as a leader among her peers despite being new to Frankford. Marcel works hard to ensure that her school is an effective learning organization and that her students are prepared for life after graduation. ‘Despite the fact that she has been acclimating to a new school this year,’ said Principal Calderone, ‘she has given freely of her time to support new special education teachers as they grow into their roles.’
Besides prioritizing the needs and education of her students, Marcel goes out of her way to help other teachers develop quality IEPs and implement the best instructional practices with a smile and a consistent positive attitude. She’s also assumed leadership of the Special Olympic program at Frankford – guiding a successful fundraiser for the program and bringing together the Frankford community in the process.
Marcel, you are a tremendous asset to Frankford High School and the School District. Thank you for being a part of the progress!”
