My name is Mrs. Berenice Heinlein! This is my 3rd year teach 4th grade at Peirce and I love being part of this community.
This is my 5th year in Chicago and I enjoy exploring the city. I live in Edgewater and consider myself as a dual citizen of Andersonville as well. I think that the community plays a large role in the life of my students, so I hope to see you at neighborhood events. I would like to involve parents in the classroom as much as possible.
I am an IB alumn with an IB diploma, and a firm believer in the power of a worldview mindset. I am a passionate and energetic teacher who believes that high quality instruction is engaging and relevant. This will be a very hands-on class! I am a graduate from Asbury University with a degree in Elementary Education and Teaching English as a Second Language. I am a first generation immigrant from Mexico who immigrated to El Paso, Texas at 8 years old.
On a more personal level, I love flowers, home baked goods and eating out when I can. My hobbies include board gaming, playing D&D, playing Pokemon GO, going to museums, and exploring the city.
I believe we are all a team working together for the education and future of your child! Let me know if your child will be absent, if you have homework questions, or if you have suggestions on ways to improve the website or classroom.
