About – Maggie Cruz
She was born and raised in the Humboldt Park community in Chicago. Before it was gentrified! Growing up in Humboldt Park had its challenges but the culture lives in her. She is Noble Alum and DePaul graduate. Her teaching career started off at Noble in 2009 and left in 2014 because She did not always agree with the discipline policy that was put in place. She then spent some time in CPS and missed the community She felt at Noble. She decided to return to Noble after learning about Noble’s commitment to being an Anti-Racist organization. After 13 years of teaching, she decided to try something new and joined UICCP as a Case Manager. It has been refreshing to learn a new position. When She is not at work, she is spending time with her husband and toddler.
