About

Hello There,

My name is Michael Macfadden, but most people call me Mike. I am a business, technology, and design teacher at Glenbrook South High School where I also sponsor the ping pong club.

Instructionally, my areas of focus include teaching entrepreneurship, graphic design, web design, and video game design. I feel incredibly fortunate to get to teach what I’m most passionate about to some of the most amazing students around.

Previously, I was employed as a district level technology coach in Lake Villa School District 41, where I worked with teachers to integrate technology into their lessons.

Prior to that, I worked in a charter school on Chicago’s Northwest Side.  There, I developed and refined a comprehensive technology curriculum that focused on 21st century literacy, which I have learned to define as “fluency in all forms of communication.”

I earned my masters in Educational Leadership from Northeastern Illinois University.  I earned a degree in History Education from Illinois State University.   I hold Type 9 teaching and  Type 75 administrative certificates. I also attended Oakton Community College, Northern Michigan University, and Governors State University, where I completed the requirements to earn Technology Education and Business, Marketing, and Computer Education teaching endorsements.

In addition to teaching, I lead professional development in the areas of educational technology and speak on matters related to business education.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sincerely,

Signature - Mike
