Ms. Adrienne Cruz

The 2017-2018 school year marks my third year teaching 7th-grade English-Language Arts at Jane Addams Middle School.

Originally from South Florida, I relocated to the Chicagoland area to attend Northwestern University for both undergraduate and graduate school. For two years, I was the lead teacher in a small-group, middle school classroom at a therapeutic day school. After that, I spent seven years as a high school co- and self-contained teacher.  I have taught all core content areas: English-Language Arts, middle and high school math, social science, and Environmental Science. 

Outside of the classroom, I am busy with my husband, son, and daughter. My favorite hobbies are traveling and nature watching; I has visited 19 National Parks in the US and 9 National Parks in Europe, the Caribbean, and Central America!

I am excited to continue working with the 7th-grade team and am honored to be a member of the JAMS community.
