Mr. Mark Laske

I'm very excited to be working as the Instructional Coach at Todd Hall. I began my career as an elementary teacher in Paw Paw, Michigan. When I had the opportunity to be part of a library grant at Dominican University, I moved to Chicago. I worked as a library media specialist for Chicago Public Schools, as well as Shanghai American School, for 12 years. I love children's literature and integrating technology into lessons at Todd Hall. In my free time I like to run, bike and do things outdoors. When it's cold outside, I like to find a good book and a cozy spot and get lost in adventures.
