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.

    My biggest weakness when I’m studying is having the Tv on , especially while watching pretty little liars. Then I tend to get hungry while I watch Tv, so there I go to make myself some food that takes off a lot of time from studying.

  6. Joshua Bembenek

    When it comes to studying, my weakness would be, not bringing the book home to actually study, and rely on memory

    • Bad weakness, but easy fix! Either read it at school so you don’t have to bring it home or keep it in your book bag instead of leaving it in your locker!

    My weakness is my phone and dog. Both very distracting!! I Tend to check my phone often and my dog wants me to pet him ._. And when my niece visits i start to play with her.

    My life today is very different in many ways than it was back when the Mirabals were growing up. Now technology has taken over. As far as freedom. Today we have freedom that they didn’t have because we have the bill of rights. We have the right to remain silent or speak what we think as for them they had to hush and couldn’t say much.

  20. Alondra Pulido

    My weekness would have to be my procrastination because if I know I could do something I would time how long it could take and always tell myself “I’ll do it later , after this , after that .” Also social medias on my IPod such as snapchat because my friends and I be sending each other ugly snapchats of each other that keep us laughing or just going through IG and twitter to see what’s new .
