I taught and coached jr. high and high school students for 5 years prior to attending law school. After practicing law for 26 years, I decided to return to teaching. This is my fourth year at St. Pius X / St. Leo School, following several years at Boys Town High School. My wife Patricia teaches algebra at SPSL and we are blessed with four married children and eight grandchildren. I am also a life long fan of Notre Dame and the Cubs.
