Education/Blurb: I am excited to be part of the District 86 family. I currently teach Acting 1, English 1- Honors, and British Literature at Hinsdale Central High School. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. After college, I worked as an actor in Chicago until I realized my true passion was working with students. I went back to school, and I received my Master's degree from National-Louis University. I taught at Grant Community High School in Fox Lake, but my heart was always in the southwest suburbs. Growing up in Brookfield, IL, I attended Lyons Township High School. Five years ago, I began teaching at Hinsdale South High School before transferring to Central for the 2015-2016 school year.  At South, I taught a plethora of English and theatre classes, and I directed various show slots including the musical.  I currently live with my wife, Nora, and our two kids, Simon and Oliver, in Mount Prospect.
