City Schools News
My proudest accomplishment at City Schools is... that as part of the Teacher of the Year award, I was asked to join a panel for Loyola University’s UNITE program, an organization that supports thriving teachers in urban education. It was a great opportunity to speak with and inspire education students about the experiences, triumphs, and challenges I have encountered in City Schools.
Something people may not know about me is... that I have never eaten a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!
