  • I was born and raised in Poland, but Chicago has been my home for the past 22 years. In today’s fast- paced world, I believe that it is important to take a break when possible. In my free time, I just enjoy being in nature.  This is my 16th year teaching for Chicago Public Schools.  In my classroom I strive to build strong connections with students and their families by creating an atmosphere of respect and rapport. I welcome and value family involvement so please feel free to contact me.
