Angel Santiago holds a Master of Education from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He was a member of Kappa Delta Pi. Angel began his career at Lindenwold Public School District and currently teaches fifth grade language arts in the Gloucester Township Public School District. From participating and facilitating in school events such as “Hispanic Heritage Night,” and “Donuts with Dudes,” Angel tries to make it a point to be inclusive with his families. He has participated in committees, piloted new curriculums, and administered professional development knowing the importance of investing in his school and the growth of the staff and school community. Although winning Loring Flemming and Camden County’s Teacher of the Year are the first large accolades of his career, Angel does boast a wall full of red apple letters from former students that he holds dear. Perhaps the project he is most proud of is after school club, Young People of Character (YPOC), which is a group of students from different social situations that perform different community service projects. YPOC is a club dedicated to raising leaders who are strong, empathetic, and who reflect the community in which they will one day lead.
