Brief Biography: Ms. Reilly has been interested in working in education since I starting playing school when she was 5 years old. While studying at West Chester, she changed my major from Education to Exercise Physiology because she became interested in the science behind exercise and nutrition concepts. “I did end up going back to school to finish my education degree and pursue my Masters at Neumann University,” she adds. “Since then, I worked as a substitute teacher for several years and then had my first full-time teaching job at charter school in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, due to school closings and lay-offs I had a very challenging time finding another teaching job after that one. At that point, I decided to travel the world and worked as a flight attendant for four years. However, I am very happy now to be on land and back working in the education field. I am very grateful to be employed at PA Leadership Charter School.”

Ms. Reilly was born and raised in Philadelphia, but now resides in Delaware county with my cat, Tiger. “I am an active person outside of work as I am usually doing strength and conditioning training or OCR training. I finished my first Spartan in July 2017 and hope to collect many more medals!”
