Mr. Mack helps with multiple classes throughout the day.

With the many new additions to the school, Dylan Mack is the newest special education teacher. However, he is not new to teaching as he has 10 years of experience. 

Mack previously taught at Elwood Park High School and is adjusting to a new school that he believes is, “good and different, but in a good way.” 

Mack graduated from Concordia University Chicago with a degree in Secondary Physical Education. 

“Everybody has been really friendly and nice and definitely very supportive,” Mack said.

One of Mack’s goals for this school year is to revamp the ARC program.

 “[I’m] just trying to help make it as best as possible and adding what I can to the special education department,” Mack said.

The ARC program is, “the largest statewide advocacy organization for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” according to illinoislifespan.org. 

“They [the staff] have been super approachable and easy to work with and overall really nice,” Mack said. 

Along with teaching in the special education department, Mack is head freshman football coach this year and plans to coach the lacrosse team for the spring season.

David Arroyo is a senior, and this is his first year taking Journalism. He values humility and finds it pointless to brag about the many accolades and accomplishments he has done over the years. When not carrying Lemont on his back, he is out carrying JiffyLube on his back instead. He takes great pride in changing oil and not so much pride in forgetting to reinstall the occasional skid plate. On the homefront, he enjoys relaxing with his family and attempting to cook. As for his future, his dreams and aspirations remain a secret to all those but himself.
