Aisha Anderson-Oberman is the PLS Admissions Director as well as humanities teacher in the Junior High. Previously, she worked with Teach For America helping to develop and market their new teacher support and development website.
Aisha taught secondary school history for 7 years. First with 7th and 8th graders in the Baltimore City Public Schools and then teaching African American History to 10th graders in the School District of Philadelphia. Aisha has also worked as a union organizer in Vermont.
Aisha's daughter Nadja is a student at PLS. After an awesome first year as a PLS parent, Aisha applied to be the Admissions Director because she wanted to share our one-of-a-kind school with the broader community. She believes that every child deserves a place like Project Learn School.
Outside of school, Aisha enjoys spending time with her husband Seth and their two children, Nadja and Gyasi. She dreams of some day visiting several African countries. Aisha feels that her mission in life is to help make the world a safe place for children to grow into the people that they want to be no matter what their circumstance.
