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.

    A Reading Moment I Had Was When I Had To Read More Than An Hour To Win a Six Flags Ticket A Writing Moment Was When I Had To Write A Random Essay About The Random thing Ever, Topic Was About ” What would You Choose, A Dog Or A Cat?” Pretty Weird And Hard To Choose Lol

    My proudest writing moment was when I wrote a poem about bullying. My 8th grade teacher entered me in a contest and I was able to make it into to the top 50. Sadly I didn’t win 1st place, but they still gave me tickets to a Sox, Cubs, and Chicago Fire game. I was happy with that.

    For reading , I remember I used to fill up my reading logs and try to read as many books as I could to win a six flags ticket at the end of the year. For writing I remember I wrote a story that was nominated best creative out of the whole school in freshman year.

    In the 4rd grade, I read 100 books in one month to win a free ticket to Six Flags.

    A reading moment I was proud of is when I read my first book. My family and I were on a trip to Wisconsin, and I brought along my favorite book. I sounded each word out and before I knew it, I was reading!

    Reading- When i had to read and log my time to win pizzas and six flags tickets
    Writing- When we had to write a scary story and it was a mini contest in each class and i was one of the top 5 back in 6th grade.

    I think I relate more to Minerva because in a away she is a loud mouth and a rebel. I do and speak what i want and please out of school. And Sometimes I get other people in trouble for something I did. (not on purpose)

  16. Julia Rivas

    My greatest accomplishment was in grade school when I would get a free sin flags ticket every year if I would fill out a reading log saying I read more than 60 hours.

  17. Julie Flores

    My proudest moment would have to be when I wrote a poem and it got published in a huge book of poems for 8th grade. I didn’t believe that something I wrote would actually be good enough, so it was an honor.

    Throwback Thursday was when I would come from school at 2:30 and do my homework.
