Don’t MISS OUT MONDAY!!! 4 days and counting!

Hi all! Oh my goodness, LAST BLOG OF THE YEAR!!! We have had a great year and you have worked HARD so I hope you are proud of yourselves. You might not see, but you have changed so much this year and I am glad that I got to be a part of your life for a little while!  As we say till next year, I just want you to know it has been my pleasure teaching you and getting to know you 🙂 Now let’s get down to business, here is your LAST grade boost for the year:

For DON’T MISS OUT MONDAY- Ever heard that song, Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing, by Aerosmith?   Might be before you were born, but I want you to be reflective and tell me one thing you don’t want to miss out on in your life and one thing you think you have done to help you towards the things you want this year.  For example, I don’t want to miss out on traveling the world, so this year I tried to save some money so I can go on a trip to Europe and the Philippines next year.  SO… I shared with you, share yours with me and get your Extra Credit! In the comments, fill in this sentence stem:

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.
