My name is Manuel Flores.  I am extremely excited to be joining the Jahn family this school year as a Special Education Classroom Assistant.  I have a lot of experience working with youth for the Chicago Park District and with CPS.  I believe that every child deserves a good quality education and learning experience and that is the main reason why I decided to start working for CPS.
I was born in Chicago and raised in Lake View where I still currently live. I am a CPS graduate and my favorite subject is History/Social Studies.  I enjoy reading and learning about different cultures and events from past and present. I love spending time with my family and enjoying the outdoors.  I have 3 children in grades Kindergarten and 8th grade.  I am also a big Chicago sports fan.
