Julia Nichols: This is my 6th year as an ELL specialist in District 205, and my 3rd year as part of the wonderful Fischer family. I love teaching students to be successful in their language skills. I graduated from Oberlin College with a B.A. in Spanish and Sociology and received my Masters in Education from UIC. I've taught K, 1st and 4th grades in self-contained bilingual classrooms, as well as teaching Spanish in elementary and middle schools. I look forward to another great year of guiding your child as a reader, writer, speaker and listener of language.
Sybil Siska: I'm excited to say this is my 5th year at Fischer! My 10th year of teaching, I have taught both here in the states as well as English as a Second Language in the south of Spain. A graduate of the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana, I hold my bilingual, Spanish, and ESL teaching certifications. I am excited to continue to watch the students grow and learn this year! Please visit my personal website for Spanish and English resources.
