book cover, Archie’s Architecture by Liz Sandoval LuerasEducator Liz Sandoval Lueras was born and raised in sky-scraper lined Chicago. Her book, Archie’s Architecture, uses creative and unique ways to share the remarkable culture and personality of her hometown.

Luera, a student-teacher supervisor with Whittier College’s graduate program in education, lovingly describes the awe-inspiring architecture that Chicago boasts. At the same time, while Archie—the title character—has a special love of buildings, his bigger passion lies in getting to know the people who live and work inside of them. 

Lueras has been teaching full-time for 10 years. Her classroom experience includes RSP (special education) and classrooms in grades K-8. Moreover, her love for architecture began when she started working at Chicago Architecture Foundation, a non-profit cultural organization. Lueras’ works have been featured in major publications such as EdSource, Latina magazine, Newsweek, Los Angeles Times, and San Gabriel Valley Tribune. Her work has also been featured on Chicago Public Radio. Currently, Lueras resides in Whittier, California where she lives happily with her husband and family.
