She's a third grade teacher at Wills-- one of the city's "No Excuses" campuses. While the focus at those schools is making sure students there commit to going to college, Mrs. Flanagan maintains a caring demeanor in the classroom while challenging her students to do their very best.
Mrs. Flanagan loves teaching third grade because of the eagerness of her students but loves teaching at Wills because of the diversity.
