Meet Ms. Julia Petrosino
A Chicago native, Ms. Petrosino is a new second grade teacher this year. She received her bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from Illinois State University. She quickly realized that children, not news, was her passion.
"I decided that being an educator was my true calling in life and I completed my master of arts in teaching early childhood education at Northeastern Illinois University." She has taught pre-school, kindergarten, first and second grades in CPS for six years.
"I have enjoyed every minute of being in the classroom. I especially enjoy teaching literacy. I look forward to working with the Skinner West community and an exciting year!"
