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.

    Nelson is more of a follower than a leader. He wants to go to school and Patria is worried that Nelson will follow along with the kids at school wanting to join the group against Trujillo.

  2. Melissa Barrera

    Nelson knows about the secret meetings that the Mariposas are having and Patria is worried that Nelson might want to join in with them.
