Teacher, Artist, World Traveler, CPS
I was born in Krakow, Poland, and because my parents won a visa lottery to the United States, we moved to Chicago when I was eight years old. It always fascinated and humbled me to know that my parents left their families, credentials, and language behind to potentially provide more for our family. I always connected my experiences as an immigrant with my students and their families. I currently teach the third grade Spanish-Bilingual and Polish Language program at Horace Greeley Elementary School in Lakeview. Prior to that, I taught the third grade Gifted Program and Polish Language at the same school. I moved back to Chicago last year after working in Sydney, Australia for the past two years. Other experiences teaching abroad include schools in Spain and China.
