Spend a Day with Daniel Santos, Lead Teacher

Daniel Santos joined Success Academy in July 2016 and is currently a second grade teacher in the Bronx. At 25% of Bronx public schools, not even 1 in 10 students reads, writes, and does math on grade level. But at Mr. Santos’ school, 92% of scholars have these skills. Success Academy is changing this trajectory for the 17,000 students we serve across New York City.

There’s so much room for quick growth at Success. I went from being a beginner teacher in 2013, to holding a lead teacher role the next year, to moving into an assistant principal role just a few years later. Now I’m a principal, getting to coach others just starting out.

Coming from a competitive college, I find the pace at Success Academy to be very appealing. If we think something isn’t helping our kids, we make changes the next day — or the next period! Working here is hard, at times even exhausting, but I love being surrounded by a community that is willing to do what it takes to do right by kids.
