Welcome to Ms. Maks’ 5th and 6th Grade Language Arts Class

Greeting Students and Parents,

This is my 10th year of teaching in Chicago Public Schools. I have been a Language Arts teacher at Lorca since the doors opened in 2010. I am a graduate of Illinois State University, where I received my teaching certification. I deeply enjoy my job and what I do. Nothing makes me happier than analyzing a good book with an eager group of students.

Parents are always welcome to see what is going on in my classroom and your support as a parent/guardian in an integral part of your child’s success. Please be in touch with your questions, concerns or thoughts. I can always be reached through email at jemaks@cps.edu.

Please refer to www.edmodo.com  for the latest class assignments and to access our online learning community. (See below for Edmodo codes)

I am truly looking forward to a phenomenal school year and expect to work closely with all of you. I will be providing all the support that you will need to have a successful school year as a Lorca Orca!



Ms. Maks
