Happy Parent Teacher Conferences!

Hi all! Happy Parent Teacher Conferences! I am looking forward to meeting your parents. I can not wait to tell them how I proud I am of all the hard work you are doing. I hope you realize how proud you should be. Statically Freshmen year is the hardest year of transition you will ever experience in your lives and Sophomore year is the critical year when students decide if they will continue to be life learners. These choices are hard, but you are doing it and doing it well!

With that said I am excited to to meet your moms and dads so I hope you will grace me with your presence today!

FYI If you do come, you will have an opportunity at extra credit, of course!!!

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.
