About Me

I have been a full-time teacher for 29 years - 26 of them in New Lenox.  I began teaching at St. George School in Tinley Park in 1992.  In 1995, I began teaching 6th grade @ Oakview, then moved on to teach 6th grade @ Nelson Ridge when it opened in 1999.  I began teaching at Liberty when it opened in 2002 and have been here ever since.

I have been coaching wrestling for the NLSD team since 1996 and a boys track coach since 2000.  I took over the position of Liberty's Athletic Director in  2004.

In addition, I have been coaching football at Providence Catholic since 2008.
