Thursday, July 19, 2018, Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund Board of Trustees appointed James Cavallero to serve as a Teacher Trustee. Trustee Cavallero will serve out the remainder of Trustee Bernice Eshoo’s term, until the Board’s regular November meeting. Trustee Eshoo retired from active service in June.
For most of her 35-year career with CPS, Bonnie Glassner taught students with disabilities, incorporating visual art work into her lessons whenever possible in order to combine her two loves of teaching and art. Retiring from teaching in 2012 provided more time to focus on her art, so Bonnie began crafting and creating mixed media pieces. This eventually led to her discovery of alcohol ink—an acid-free and highly-pigmented substance that creates vibrantly-colored works—and she knew she had found her medium.
