Think Ahead Thursday

Hello all! As we end week 4, we are more aware of the way that we think. We now understand the grading scale and how we will track our progress this year.  We are also building on our ideas about our choices and how they affect our identities. Continue the hard work, and make good choices, as you work hard to achieve your goals!

With that said, please make sure you are checking Student Portal. PROGRESS REPORTS ARE NEXT WEEK! Please let me know if you have any questions!

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.
