Welcome to Homer Junior High School. I am excited to have you as part of my class. I received my bachelor’s degree in History and Secondary Education from Carroll University and my master's degree in Administration from Benedictine University. I live with my wife, Katherine (a special education teacher in Lisle), my two daughters, Madeline and Elizabeth, and our dog Butkus. I am a huge Bears and Cubs Fan. I played football and threw shot and discus in college. When I was in the 7th grade, I swam for the Roselle Park District swim team, played alto saxophone in the school's band and was a member of the school basketball team. This is my 12th year of teaching at Homer Junior High. I am also a coach for the boys track and field team. I’m looking forward to having a great school year!
