 Why I work at Chicago Bulls College Prep: English has always been my best subject. Reading  and writing allowed me to escape from the more difficult times in my life into a world that was  beautiful, comforting, and somehow home. Reading showed me how to understand the importance  of the hardships in my life as well as opened my eyes to a new world view. When I became an  educator, I knew I wanted to share this love of English with my students. I started out working in  universities, but I found that most students were not adequately prepared to be there. I wanted to do  more. CBCP is a place I can both share my love of English in a genuine way with my students and  help students become prepared for college. On our best days, my classes and I enter into a  artistically constructed world that challenges our views of the tragedies around us and push each  other to be more analytical and responsible world citizens.
