My name is Tiina Villareal and I welcome all current and new students to the 2022-23 school year. I am excited to get to know the students and families and to have an awesome year of working together. I welcome all your questions and comments, so please don't hesitate to contact me.
This will be my 10th year teaching at Chicago Public Schools and my 8th year at McCutcheon. I am the MTSS (Multiple Tiered Systems of Support) Coordinator, which is a fun way of saying interventions. I will be supporting classroom teachers from Kindergarten to 8th grade with differentiation and interventions. I am ESL certified and hold endorsements in Middle School ELA, Math, and Social Studies.
I have lived in Chicago for 20 years. I have a husband, two kids - an 13-year-old son and a 5-year-old daughter, and three dogs - Kaya, Mickey, and Minnie. My favorite pastime is traveling. I love home improvement projects and have spent the last summer demolishing, painting, building, and gardening. Looking through my window, you might find me tackling a riveting science fiction book, a new jigsaw puzzle, or the next HIIT workout.
