About Nicholas

I attended Lewis University and completed all coursework to be a secondary teacher grades 6 to 12 with a focus on English / Language Arts. I worked in the Computer Leasing field until 2004 as Customer Service, Inside Sales and various Operations positions. I also worked in Consumer Finance for 6 years and left as Branch Manager after graduating college.

I've raised two sons (now ages 24 and 21) through OPRF HS and one has graduated from Knox and the other is in his senior year at Marquette. I also coached baseball and soccer in Oak Park for over 7 years as both head and assistant coach. I decided to pursue teaching as a secondary career in 2004 because of personal fulfillment.

I was an avid reader and writer since I was ten yrs. old and was good at it without a lot of effort. As a youth I was
a serious comic book collector and voluntarily read the entire Ian Fleming (James Bond 007) series. In high school and college reading and writing came easily to me as opposed to Math. I am also proficient in History and Humanities and
enjoy Philosophy and Anthropology. I believe strongly that writing makes you a better reader and vice-versa.
