Meet the Development Staff
Robert S. Weinstein
Vice President of Development
“The moment you step through the door of Gesu School, you can feel the spirit and infectious nature of this unique school. Gesu’s holistic approach to education and its devoted faculty and volunteers, make the school a true model for a successful urban education. It is an honor to come to work every day knowing that I, along with a talented Development Team are helping to ensure that Gesu continues to have a lasting impact on the lives of so many deserving young children now and in the future.”
Director of Major Gifts
"It is so important that children feel people care about them. At Gesu, I work with a talented team of leaders who are dedicated to the school’s core values of providing academic, spiritual, and social development to bright and enthusiastic children. It is more than rewarding to see the life-changing impact our supporters have on our young learners. I am so proud of our children because of their academic excellence and because they believe they can accomplish anything."
Director of Communications
"Gesu School’s leadership, teachers, staff, and community are truly dedicated to its mission to provide quality education for children in North Philadelphia. I am grateful to work with such a dedicated and mission-drive team, who strives each day to ensure that students’ maximize their potential and have bright futures!"
Sarah Stirzel Cuzzolina
Director of Annual Giving
"It is rare to work in a place where the mission isn’t only something you strive for, but something that you get to see working and completed. At Gesu, our goal is to break the cycle of poverty through phenomenal holistic education. The day in and the day out of that is hard work, and often times you don’t immediately feel successful. But then, you run into alumni, who are now successful and managing a business or getting promoted at work. These former children from Gesu show that Gesu Works, and that makes this one of the best places to work."
