Meet Jorie Pesce

Hello!

 

My name is Jorie Pesce and I teach MYP, Honors, and Regular English 1. Here's a little bit about me:

 

  • I have 8 years of teaching experience, including 9th-10th grade English, 9th-12th grade English as a second language, and 7th grade Language Arts.
  • I appreciate the IB philosophy and teach students to be global-minded people, strong communicators, critical thinkers, and caring individuals.
  • I incorporate students' identities, cultural backgrounds, and opinions into my teaching, and utilize students as teachers as much as possible.
  • My husband and I love to travel, and our favorite places include: Ireland, France, Italy, Peru, Grand Teton National Park, and Kauai. See photos below taken in some of my favorite places!

 

To learn more about my classes, please visit my other page: Learn about English 1. There, you'll find the English 1 syllabus, student expectations, information about grading, and what each unit entails. Below, there are links to Google Classroom, where even more information is given on a weekly (and sometimes daily) basis.

 

I can always make myself available to help students, and believe one-on-one or small group support from a teacher is the best way to learn. After-school support can be requested via e-mail at jmalone7@cps.edu or students can usually find me at the following times:

 

Wednesdays, Thursdays, & Fridays

Room 301

3:00 - 4:00

 

Thanks for visiting!
