“Hard work isn’t easy, but it’s fair.”
I have been a Palatine Pirate since 2003. In that time I have been active as a coach and activity sponsor. For six years I served as the Assistant Varsity Boys Lacrosse coach and for three years I volunteered as an Assistant Boys Cross Country coach. Currently, I co-sponsor the National Honor Society and Freshman Class clubs and remain active in athletics by serving as the Fall and Spring Sports Events Supervisor.
The most successful people I know, regardless of career choice or the amount of money in their bank account, have one thing in common: they are passionate about what they are doing with their lives. I believe high school is the time to cultivate that passion. Palatine High School should be used as a vehicle to explore new interests and to investigate current interests on a deeper level. Through trial-and-error the hope is to identify one’s passions so those may be explored post-high school.
I look forward to working with you and your parents. Please, do not ever hesitate to stop in, send me an e-mail, or give me a call.
