7th Social Studies


I graduated from Illinois State University in 2009 with a Bachelors in History Education. In 2014, I obtained my endorsement to teach Special Education from the University of St. Francis.


I started my career at Manteno Middle School in 2013-14 as a Substitute Teacher and Paraprofessional. In 2014-15 I was hired on to be an 8th grade Resource teacher. I am excited to announce that this year I will be the new 7th grade Social Studies Teacher.


I am a former resident of New Lenox and graduate from Lincoln-Way Central High School. There I met my high school sweetheart, later becoming my wife. We both shared the same passion to teach and were fortunate enough to attend the same college together. My wife currently teaches at Donovan CUSD 3 as the High School Science teacher.  


My wife and I had an eventful summer that started with celebrating our 1st year wedding anniversary. We took a family trip to the Smoky Mountains region and Disney World. We also moved in our very first home here in Manteno where we are very proud to be residents of this great community. As summer winds down, I am very excited and looking forward to be teaching Social Studies this upcoming school year at Manteno Middle school!
