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.

    It would be typical for Minerva to go to any fund raisers or rallies to support anything people are against. For example if Minerva believes that there is nothing wrong with being gay, lesbian or bisexual she would go to the Pride parade , makes signs, make people sign a petition etc.

    A typical thing for me would be the fact that I’m always eating. Everytime I show up anywhere I have food in my hand. The only way I can get through my days smoothly is by snacking constantly throughout the day.

    Something typical for Dede was having to be reminded every year why she was the only surviving Sister.

    Something typical of me is to be listening to music. Whenever I can(most of the time) I do, you can always see me with my headphones on, ignoring the world, and being concentrated on my music.
