Consumer Economics (Summer Only)

I worked as a proprietary futures trader at the Chicago Board of Trade for almost 10 years. For the past 5 years I have taught business education at the secondary level mainly at Lyons Township High School in LaGrange, IL.

After leaving the Board of Trade I reflected long and hard about my next move, I considered the fact I love to help others, as well as the deep tradition of educators in my family, it is in my blood! I am very happy I made the move, it has been the most rewarding 5 years of my career.
