Total rewards program
Total Rewards is an initiative that Public Prep created to better understand the total compensation and benefits packages that we are able to provide for our employees. We annually analyze our benefits, professional development and support structures, and staff satisfaction in order to brainstorm incentives based off five key aspects of the workplace: 1) time, 2) staff recognition, 3) continuous learning opportunities/ professional development, 4) longitudinal financial incentives, and 5) joy. As we continue to grow, our Total Rewards Program helps us understand the ever changing needs of our staff, network-wide.
I chose Girls Prep because we focus on character as much we focus on academics and college readiness.

I’ve always thought the question of why I chose to join something was far less interesting than why I stayed. My decision to join Public Prep has been rewarding. I work with a team of adults who believe in our students’ intellectual, interpersonal, and character capacities; who see their own learning inextricably linked with their teaching; who provide students with structure that makes them feel safe and choice that values their individuality. I have a network CEO who never stops believing in our students and never stops opening pathways of opportunity for them. Most fundamentally, I stay here because I look forward to work when I wake up in the morning.
Public Prep is an amazing and dynamic organization to work within and lead. In my decade with the organization, I have been challenged to develop systems, push my thinking, reflect on my biases, and create clear through lines between the work we do across various departments and student achievement. I am proud to work alongside a dedicated team with a focus on attracting, recruiting, developing, and retaining educators with a lens of diversity, equity and inclusion at the forefront of our work.
