Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. John Stewart
Hello. I was a newspaper reporter in small cities in Illinois and Iowa for 30 years before becoming a teacher. (Here is my 2018-2019 Letter to parents.)
I worked at The Daily Illini, the student newspaper at the University of Illinois-Champaign; and the daily newspapers in Burlington, Iowa, and Kankakee, Illinois. I have degrees in journalism and English, as well as teaching certification from Governors State University, near Chicago, from 2009.
