I grew up on the north side of Chicago in Albany Park, and during my sophomore year in high school, my parents moved us to the northern suburbs. I went to college in South Bend, Indiana at Holy Cross College where I finished my Associate Degree. Then, I transferred into DePaul University where I completed my Bachelor Degree, then continued at DePaul to complete my Master Degree. I am married with three wonderful children, and have lived in and around many parts of Chicago (it is one of the best cities in the world). I teach every English class we offer and have been doing so for the past nine years, and if I do say so myself, I am quite good at it!
