Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

Hope you all enjoyed a fun, belly-full-of-yumminess, shop-til-you-drop weekend! Just wanted to give you a reminder before we get back to school, hard work, and all that wonderfulness tomorrow!

Narratives were due today at 2 p.m. and I am grading away. If you make changes after you see a score on your document from me (or Ms. Feldkamp, if you are in 4th period), then please email me so that I can do my best to give you a new and improved score. I don’t want your hard work to go unnoticed, so please keep me in the loop!

Just so you know,  one of the many things I am most grateful for this year are the hard-working, thoughtful and kind students I am privileged to work with everyday- THAT MEANS YOU! You might drive me nuts, but I want to thank you for making me smile with your silliness and your bright ideas! You make the days go quickly when you are attentive and dedicated, that’s what makes this job easy (kinda lol) 🙂

See you all tomorrow 🙂

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.
