Man Crush Monday… 18 days and Counting :)

You know the deal… if you comment on the blog in regards to the daily heading, I will give you e.c. so here we go. Also, if you look under your grade level, there are some other options for E.C. Take advantage of the opportunities!  Please comment below-

For Man Crush Monday, post a character who is a Man from a book or movie that you admire! Relax this doesn’t mean you have a real crush (so guys you can answer this too), but because you admire or even idolize this person, you can consider him your “MAN” crush.  This might sound funny coming from me, but I think Atticus is AMAZING! Because of his morals and the way he treats his children, I just think he is such a great man and so he is my man crush.  And because I’m old school I’d also pick Keanu Reeves (huge Speed fan).  He was the Rob Pattinson of my generation, so with that said, I would also include Edward from Twilight  because of the chivalrous way he always treated Bella- TEAM EDWARD ALL THE WAY!!! Ok, I confessed my man crush, please confess yours 🙂

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.
