Ms. Cristina Salvador

Greetings Vikings!
I am a learning and behavior specialist and English teacher.  I earned my initial bachelor's degree from Saint Louis University in communication sciences and disorders and my initial master's degree in special education from Lewis University.  After being accepted to the Chicago Teacher Residency Program, I studied urban education and earned a second master's degree from National Louis University.  I subsequently took my first job in Chicago Public Schools 10 years ago.  After a few years in the classroom, I received a scholarship to study special education teacher leadership at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Eager to become a teacher leader, I began looking for a school where I could better grow professionally, and I was welcomed to the Amundsen community three years ago.  I have been serving as the Diverse Learner Department Chairperson for the last two years; I hope to continue to build on transition initiatives such as Career Day through my work with the Post Secondary Leadership Team to help guide students in their post- secondary endeavors.
This year I will be co-teaching 1 section of English III.  I also have one instructional class of English III and one split junior/senior class of English III/IV.   I have included links to my Google Classroom. 
I am also spending the 2 periods that I do not teacher this year working closely with the case manager, Ms. Sara Mizener, and teachers to help support diverse learners in co-taught instruction and transition supports.
My schedule is as follows for the '21-'22 school year:
