Make It Count Monday!

We are so close to WINTER BREAK, we can smell it!  So let’s make everyday count so that the week goes by quickly! Remember that when we get back from Winter Break we will only have 2 weeks left before the end of the Semester!  Remember Semester grades are what count towards you GPA and transcripts, so remember every grade counts and YOU need to WORK HARD to keep those grades impressive!

About jvpilar

Here's a little info about your teacher. I worked really hard to become your teacher. I went to UIC to get a degree in English, but decided to work as a writer in California. While I was there I realized I would rather work with kids than work in an office all day, so I decided to come back to Chicago and become a licensed, fully certified teacher. I earned a Masters Degree in Teaching and Education from Dominican University and got my first job at Hancock. During my 4 years at Hancock, I have taught English at every grade level. I started the Culinary Club and also sponsor BuildOn, both clubs do community service projects all over the city. I also have a cat named Duke that I rescued during one of our BuildOn service learning projects and a dog named Duchess.
