About Ms. Padilla

Ms. Padilla is a 1st grade teacher at Little Village Academy and has been teaching at LVA since 2015. Year after year, teaching has proved to be a rewarding profession for Ms. Padilla--she loves seeing students grow as they learn new things!
Ms. Padilla was born and raised in the Pilsen neighborhood where she went to a CPS elementary school. She then graduated from a CPS high school. Ms. Padilla studied at DePaul University where she graduated in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in elementary education, and a bilingual and a social science endorsement. Being a first generation college graduate is one of her biggest accomplishments. Ms. Padilla  uses this accomplishment to motivate students to always work hard.
Her goal is to continue teaching students academic subjects while also providing the social emotional learning that they need. She hopes that this not only helps them grow intellectually, but also gives students the tools that they need to problem-solve.

She also enjoys taking long walks at Target!
