Brendan was a teacher at Mount Carmel High School on Chicago’s south side for seven years before coming to Rauner in 2012.  Brendan served as the Dean of Discipline for one year and the Assistant Principal for five years before becoming the Principal in December of 2017. As a dedicated father of two young girls, Brendan knows the importance of the work Rauner does.
