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 2019-2020 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 teach Exceptional Student Education students at Dunnellon High School and subjects including English, Science, Social Studies and Math.
