Mr. Nunez is a product of the Archdiocese of Chicago, going to Catholic school from K-12, and is proud to be a part of the last graduating class at Quigley Preparatory Seminary South. He is a career changer, after a 16 year career in insurance investigations, he had found his calling to become a teacher. Being a graduate of IL State University with a Criminal Justice degree, he went back to school and joined National Lewis University’s teaching program with the goal of being a High School Social Studies teacher. His student teaching assignment was to teach 8th Grade Social Studies and he fell in love with teaching middle school. He immediately went back to become certified to teach middle school. After 5 years of subbing, he taught for two years at a public school near his house. He then joined the staff at SSPP four years ago and hasn’t looked back since.
He has a passion for history, especially the Middle Ages, and the World Wars, as well as teaching the Constitution where his Criminal Justice background comes into use. He has been happily married for 25 years to his wife Mary, and has two children, Nicole, 21, and William III, 13, to which he talks about often in class. He enjoys spending free time with his family, as well as tabletop games, painting, and other nerdy stuff as well.
