There are more changes coming to this site -- good ones, I think, to make the comments sections flow more readily and to bring in more parents along with the teachers and administrators who are already in the know. Or, I think that's who you are. That's this week's question: Who are you? North side teacher, South side parent, elementary principal, first-year rookie? Put as much or little information as you want, but try and put something. I'll go first...
I am a Chicago-raised education writer who has this blog and a
national one. I grew up in Lakeview -- Latin Kings territory then --
and lived until last year in Wicker Park right near Pritzker Elementary
(new preschool program coming soon, I hear). My sister got beat up at
Alcott so they sent us to Parker. (How's Alcott doing these days,
anyway, I wonder?) I played pickup basketball as a kid on the courts
outside Nettlehorst (now a parking lot).
