Woah- where did Quarter 3 go?

Quarter was a very busy and short Quarter.  With the Freshmen finishing Zeitoun and the  Sophomores completing the Bully Project, we have been very successful! We have only 3 days left in this quarter so as we push for academic achievement, let’s make sure we have any make up work completed and that we check GRADEBOOK, continuously.

With that said, make an effort to advocate for yourself and get your work done!!! Grades are due THURSDAY!!!!

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.
