Hello Everyone!

My name is Cira Olivella. I am a Learning Behavioral Specialist for the intermediate level. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.  An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world. 

I am a graduate of Rockford University with a masters in in Education and a graduate of North Park University with a bachelors in Human development. I have been teaching for 8 years at Jahn and working for CPS for over 20.

My husband and I have a beautiful family of three and two 4-legged children. Chicago has been our home town for a long time. I enjoy being outdoors.  During the summer I spend my free-time gardening, hiking, camping, gardening and traveling. In the winter, I love to go sledding, decorate for the holiday, cook, and read. 

I look forward to getting to know all of you this school year!
