Tim Feltman (he/him) is originally from Long Island, NY, but moved to Chicago over 17 years ago and calls Chicago his home. Feltman comes from a family of teachers and educators, which made him interested in education.
After high school, he attended Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, and majored in psychology and elementary/special education. After college, he started teaching in an elementary school in Chicago Public Schools. While teaching, he attended Concordia University and obtained his Master of Arts in Reading Education. He left the teaching field after five years to get his master’s in social work and work at Loyola University. He came back to education in 2021 to be a counselor at Mansueto.
Outside of school, Tim enjoys playing and watching movies with his 3-year-old daughter and partner, reading, cooking, eating, and traveling (which is hard with a 3-year-old!)
Q: What is the best part of your job?
“The best part of my job is seeing students grow from 11th grade to alumni! It is exciting to see students get their college acceptances and go to their program of choice.”
