Hello there! My name is Amanda Calzada and I am a proud teacher at Lazaro Cardenas Elementary School on the southwest side of Chicago. Our school now serves students in grades pre-K to 8th grade in the Little Village neighborhood. Our student population consists of 97% low income students and 95% of our student population is Hispanic. My classroom is the 'home' to 25 wonderful transitional bilingual Kindergarten students who love school and are eager to learn. My students, many of which are attending school for the first time in Kindergarten, are open to new experiences that allow them to learn, grow, laugh, listen, share, and most importantly, love. We are grateful for your help as we continue to build our strong community of learners in Room 102.
