Mrs. Alber - I've been at Peirce for 14 years and have really enjoyed working in this community. I've taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rde grade as well as spending 3 years in the library. I am a mom of 3 girls and really enjoy spending time reading, biking, and walking in nature.
Mrs. Baumgarten - Hi! This is my fifth year at Peirce, and 14th year of teaching. Previously I taught in the Englewood community for 9 years. My undergraduate degree is in Theater and Film from the University of Kansas. I obtained my Master of Arts in Teaching from National Lewis and my National Board Certification focusing on Early Childhood. I am currently working on my ESL endorsement. I am excited to get to know all the second graders at Peirce. When I am not in the classroom I love to spend time with my husband and 7 year old twin boys.
Miss Bencel - This is my sixth year at Peirce but my tenth year of teaching. I stay involved at Peirce by coaching Girls on the Run and Cheerleading. In my free time, I love to run. I also love to eat, so I'm always checking out the newest restaurants or trying new recipes. Additionally, I serve as the Vice President for the Penn State Alumni Association Chapter of Chicago. I am a member of the Andersonville/Edgewater community, so if you see me out and about, please say hi!
Mrs. Delgado - This is my 28th year at Peirce. In those 28 years, I have taught music, 3rd grade, and 2nd grade. I have 4 grown children who all attended Peirce as well. I have my ESL, Spanish bilingual, Spanish as a second language, and music endorsements. My oldest daughter is also a CPS teacher. In my spare time I enjoy singing with the Northeastern Illinois University Chorus and the Northwestern University Summer Chorus. I also love spending time with my two year old grandson.
