I’m back!

Hi all! As you know, I was unable to access the site, but we’re here now, so let’s do what we do best- WORK! So far, I am impressed with your work ethic and I hope you will continue to impress me as we move through the year!

We are well into our novel The Kite Runner. Everyone should have read up to CH.3. Be for a quiz on CH.3 and to do some work on CH.4 and 5 this week. If you still haven’t turned in your Literary Luminary Role sheet or taken the Ch. 1-2 quiz, please see me as soon as possible! I am available during your lunch period to complete any missing work!


-Complete Ch.4 Fishbowl Discussion Questions

-Read CH.5 and write 5 discussion questions


Come to the Latino Heritage Month Movie Night!  Wednesday September 30 in the Auditorium 5-7 p.m.



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.
