I have been teaching at Mundelein High School for 15 years, and have taught AP Government for 6 years now. I also teach US History, American Government and Politics and the Civil War and Reconstruction. I graduated from Northern Illinois University in 1995 with a B.A. in History. I then received my M.A. in History from Northeastern Illinois University in 2001. This past fall, I received my Master of Arts in School Administration from Concordia University of Chicago. I have been a AP Reader since 2006.

My wife Tracy has taught ESL and Spanish and is currently tutoring students in Spanish. I have three wonderful children, including my daughter Rory who is 6, son TJ who is 2 and new daughter Riley who was born November 12th, 2009.

My passions are my family, history, politics and sports. I am a Brewer and Packer fan. I have traveled extensively throughout the United States, most recently visiting San Francisco, St. Louis and Memphis. One of my more memorable vacations was returning from Williamsburg, VA and stopping at the US Capitol Building and waiting 4 1/2 hours in the middle of the night to pay my respects to President Reagan.
