This principle has informed her actions, whether in the classroom teaching children or managing complex projects impacting thousands of District employees or every teacher, or child in the District. Consistent with her student-centered educational philosophy, Dr. Newberg embraces new challenges, new ideas, and new approaches to help our District meet the needs of the children of Philadelphia.
