About Mrs. Vancil:
This is my 14th year teaching in CPS. I knew at a very young age that the only career I wanted was to be a teacher. It wasn't until I did my student teaching experience that I realized middle school was my home. I taught on the south side for much of my time but landed at Volta a few years ago. I couldn't be happier teaching at a school that is so rich in diversity. I am married and have two small children. My daughter Abigail is currently in 4th grade and my son Nathan is in 3rd grade. I recently rescued a dog and we named him Kona. I love to travel and have been to six other countries: Norway, Netherlands, Mexico, Bahamas, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic. My absolute favorite vacation spot is Hawaii because I got married there. I want the absolute best for each of my students who sit in front of me. If you were to ask any of my past students they would probably tell you that I am a tough teacher but love each and every one of them. I teach respect and give each of my students the respect they deserve. Oh and I'm a CUBS fan!!!!
