Hello! I have been at Armstrong School for several years. I wasn’t originally a teacher and after working 20 years in the corporate world, I decided to change my career. My original degree from Western Illinois University was a Bachelor of Business. So, in 2002, I went back to school and graduated with a Masters in Education from Roosevelt University in 2004. I began my teaching career at Armstrong and decided to obtain another masters degree. In 2009, I graduated from NIU with a Masters in Literacy Education with an emphasis in English Language Learning. I enjoy teaching and always continue to educate myself by reading and attending staff development and workshops. In fact, I completed my third Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the American College of Education. Education is important and it’s one thing that people cannot take away from you.
I am happily married to my wife, Marilou, and we have three children. I also have four grandchildren. I live in Schaumburg so you just might see me at your favorite store or restaurant. I like to collect lighthouses especially for the lighthouses that I have visited. I like to garden, travel and relax on vacations too.
