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 second year at St. Pius X / St. Leo School and I am very pleased to be back in the classroom. My wife Patricia teaches algebra at SPSL and we are blessed with 4 married children and seven grandchildren, with number eight due in March. I am also a life long fan of Notre Dame and the Cubs.
