Meet the Sixth Grade Teacher

Mr. Timothy McGovern

I was born and grew up in New Jersey, where I went to school at St. Peter-by-the-Sea and Christian Brothers Academy. I came to Chicago to study at the University of Chicago, and fell in love with the city—twenty-five years on, I've never left! I've also never stopped learning: I got my B.A. and M.A. studying Early Christianity and Ancient Judaism at the U. of C., and after working as a book editor (in history, sociology, and technology) for many years, I decided to return to the classroom to share my love of learning with students. I'm currently studying towards a Master's degree in Education at Dominican University, and I'm excited to share my love of history, music, and bicycles with you!
