The Education Leadership Program in the Department of Organization and Leadership
Allie DeRosa teaches Spanish to eighth grade students at KIPP Ujima Village Academy in Baltimore, Maryland, a charter school whose mission is to lead students from low socioeconomic backgrounds and a diversity of skill levels to attend and succeed in four-year colleges. Allie is responsible for bridging the gap between middle and high school foreign language and is charged with creating and implementing a curriculum that will allow students to receive high school foreign language credits while still in middle school. For the past three years, Allie taught Spanish levels I, II and Honors Spanish III at Patterson High School, a public high school in Baltimore City. While working at Patterson, she also co-chaired the School Family Council in an effort to further link the school community with the community beyond Patterson. Allie aspires to become a leader of a community school that meets all of the needs of its students while its students give back to the community.
