UW alumnus Mancilla profiled on Madison School's website

April 02, 2016

UW-Madison alumnus Gerardo Mancilla, a dual language immersion teacher at Cherokee Middle School, ‚Äčis profiled on the Madison Schools’ website

Mancilla recently completed his Ph.D. work with the School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum & Instruction.

"I went into teaching to support youth in being successful by preparing them academically, socially, and emotionally," Mancilla says in the story. "The preparation occurs in the classroom, in after school settings, and in the community. The best part of my job is seeing students be successful, have fun, and enjoy learning."

Mancilla's relationship with the Madison Metropolitan School District began when he taught as a student teacher at Cherokee.

"My most memorable moment was attending the West High School graduation in 2013," he says in the story. "This graduating cohort included the first class that I had taught as a student teacher at Cherokee. The students that I worked with as sixth graders were walking the across the stage and graduating from high school."
