Bridgit Cusato-Rosa

Principal: Kaitlin McCann

Growing up in a household that was very supportive of education, Kaitlin was always encouraged to work hard, go to college and change the world. While attending The College of New Jersey, Kaitlin worked in tutoring programs in Trenton and saw the disparity of education that existed in urban schools compared to her own schooling and the suburban districts she was student teaching in. Kaitlin joined Teach for America in 2008 and began teaching math at Freedom Academy. She continued as a math teacher and soon witnessed Freedom Academy transition to Freedom Prep and became part of the Democracy Prep Network. It was evident from these experiences that teachers and leaders change the game for scholars. Wanting to help ensure all Freedom scholars receive an excellent education, Kaitlin applied to Leader U and became a Leader U Fellow in 2014-2015. In 2015-2016, Kaitlin became Principal of Freedom Prep and continues to work every day on her lifelong goal to ensure that all scholars receive an excellent education and that every single child is given the opportunity to work hard, go to college and change the world.
