Ms. Manon's Bio


The 2023-2024 school year will be my 10th year teaching at CPS. I have an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts - Theater from Illinois State University. After living in Los Angeles and working in the music industry, I made a return to the Midwest. I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from University of Illinois-Chicago. 
After graduating, I worked at Pritzker Elementary teaching the gifted first grade class for 9 years. I also worked as the Gifted Coordinator for the school. I love teaching novels and writers' workshop as part of a balanced literacy program. 
When I am not at work I love competing in trivia nights, watching any Chicago sports team, reading, attending comedy shows and hanging out with my handsome cat, Jake.
