#JointhePRIDE, My Why

By Lindsay Priam, Talent Recruitment Associate

I was personally drawn to pursue a career at Blackstone Valley Prep (BVP) Mayoral Academy because I wanted to be part of a team that believed every scholar could achieve. During my first interactions with scholars and teachers, I knew right away that BVP was a special place. From seeing hands that shot up to answer math problems to observing teachers lesson plan together and hearing classroom cheers, I could tell scholars enjoyed learning and teachers enjoyed teaching.

Teaching is hard work, but during my tenure as a teacher I found that collaborating with teams of people who are so like-minded and focused on 100% of scholars achieving made a world of difference. I enjoyed coming to work every day because of my scholars’ enthusiasm and because I knew I was contributing to a team focused on doing whatever it takes.

As I tour candidates around our campuses in my current role as BVP’s talent recruiter, listen to their reactions, and watch them interact with our scholars and teachers, I am reminded over and over again why I chose to work at BVP. Years later, I am proud to still be part of a team doing whatever it takes to help all of our scholars learn today, so they can lead tomorrow.

To hear from more of our staff about why they choose to work for BVP, I invite you to watch the video below.
