My name is Resilda and this is my sixth year teaching at Wells Prep in Bronzeville, Chicago. I absolutely love teaching and working with kids. I have taught kindergarten, first, fourth, and fifth grade. I graduated from UIC with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and a concentration in English. I am currently working on getting a Master’s in Special Education with a bilingual endorsement from Roosevelt University.
I have been working on eating healthier over the past year and it rubbed off on my students, so it was so exciting to see how it motivated them to make healthier choices as well. I am excited to learn more about nutrition education and bring it in to my class this year!
