Name and Grade
Mrs. Maritza Ehrhard • Library
Where are you From?
I was born in Cali,Colombia. My parents immigrated to the United States when was just a baby. I am proud to say I took my first baby steps on North Ave Beach! I have been raised here in Chicago and I enjoy this city and all it has to offer.
If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would love to travel to Chile. My favorite author is Isabel Allende and many of her books are set in Chile. She uses so much imagery in her writing that I always feel like could smell, taste and see what she describes her literary work.
What is one book that everyone must read?
Wow! It is so hard to pick just one book out of so many great ones out there! However, any book from Robert San Souci is my favorite. I like the magical elements he usually has in his stories and the colorful characters he portrays. Reader are always engaged when reading his stories.
Who was your favorite teacher growing up?
My favorite teacher was Mrs. Hill, my high school teacher. She had the amazing gift of bringing Shakespeare to life to a group of teenagers that were not at all interested in literature. She had me connecting to Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet like I never thought I could ever imagine. Since then , I have always enjoyed reading!
What do you like most about Goudy?
I am new here at Goudy school and I have to say I am very impressed with everyone here, staff, faculty, parents and most of all the students. Everyone is so nice and positive. I am looking forward to many years serving this very special community.
