Hello my name is Vanessa Acevedo, and I am the 8th grade Reading/Science and 7th grade Science teacher. This will be my second year teaching at Pilsen and I am very excited to prepare my students to be successful future high school and college students. I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a bachelor’s in Education with a middle school endorsement, and I am currently working towards my masters in teaching and inquiry. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to an exciting and challenging school year.
