Teaching is a second career for me. I believe everyone has a responsibility to make a contribution and give back to their community. As a St. Damian student and parent, I was always proud of our school, and I am blessed to have the chance to teach at a place I truly love.  My children and I all attended St. Damian. I have also served as an elected official in the City of Oak Forest over the last 20 years as Alderman, Mayor, and now as City Treasurer. I am also a cantor and a member of music ministry and love to go to movies, plays, and concerts.
