A 9th grade civics teacher, Bill Waychunas has had the incredible opportunity to be a founder of Baker College Prep, a Noble Network Charter School. After spending four years in Las Vegas teaching middle school social studies and serving as a school Improvement coordinator and data coach, he has returned to Chicago to continue sharing his passion for government and politics with his students. A self-proclaimed civics junkie, Bill has participated in the Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers and has run a successful campaign for a Nevada Assembly seat. He hopes to take these experiences and help students develop the knowledge, skills, and determination to become active citizens who can make a difference in their communities. Bill graduated from Marquette University with a BA in History and Secondary Education.
