9th Grade ELA Teacher
Ms. Vietmeier (known by her students as Ms. V.) is excited to be returning for her second year on the Intrinsic team. She will be teaching 9th Grade ELA and cannot wait to share her love of reading, writing, and the arts with her students. Though she has called Chicago home for the past two years, she was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Go Steelers!) where she taught high school English for ten years. A natural wanderer, the bright lights of New York City intrigued her, and before her move to Chicago she spent time in the Big Apple getting a Masters degree in English Education at Columbia University. Because she aims to be a “professional student,” she is currently working on a PhD at the University of Illinois at Chicago. With any spare time she has, you can find her listening to music, running by the lake, on her yoga mat, or with her nose in a book.
