Christopher Ciucci 5/6 Grade Math Teacher Sauganash Elementary School
I have 7 years of teaching experience in private and public schools, and most taught math at Orozco Academy, a Chicago Public School in the Pilsen neighborhood. Teaching summer school was a formative experience for me. I have worked with a challenging group of students in the Pilsen neighborhood and was fortunate to be paired up with Cathy French, Sauganash Elementary’s 7th and 8th grade math teacher. We co-taught the class together, and as a result I improved my teaching pedagogy through that experience. Another positive outcome was that I was invited to teach 5th and 6th grade mathematics here at Sauganash. I really enjoy connecting with my students and seeing them grow academically. I bring an energetic problem-based approach to teaching which was inspired by his math professors at National Louis University. I look forward to having a wonderful school year with the students and staff.
