“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” -Barack Obama

My name is Christian Pierre and I am honored to serve as the Acting Principal of The Phyllis Wheatley School. I am a product of the public school system and worked as a special education teacher for over 12 years in District 19 before becoming a school leader.

During my tenure as an educator I have learned that there still remains one undeniable truth, inequity knows no bounds. That is why I have an unwavering commitment to strive for educational excellence and support our students so that they can once again find joy in learning. All children deserve a quality education and a chance to find their voice.

Assistant Principal

Carla Torres

I’m excited to introduce myself as The Phyllis Wheatley School’s Assistant Principal. I am honored to lead such a vibrant and diverse school. Education has been my passion for over eighteen years. I’ve worked with many North Brooklyn and East Harlem students and families. I’m excited to partner with you in education to help your child succeed. The academic program encourages deep discussions, project-based learning, and reflective thinking. Home and school collaborate for progress.

I will work with teachers and staff to maintain good relations with parents, students, and community partners. To prepare our students for postsecondary education and meaningful careers, we will emphasize character education, Next Generation Standards, data-driven instruction, and rigorous and equitable curriculum implementation.
