Faculty Bio

Mr. Coughlin is a recent "convert" to Classical education, mainly because he didn't know it existed until 3 years ago! He was born in northern Illinois, grew up in central Wisconsin, graduated from Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH) with a B.A. in Mathematics, investigated a possible call to the priesthood at Mundelein Seminary (Mundelein, IL) for two years, and then completed his teacher certification in Illinois. He first taught high school math at an inner-city Chicago-area public school for five years, then taught at a rural Wisconsin public high school for five years, and eventually realized his dream of teaching (for 12 years) at a Catholic school (also in central Wisconsin), where he was free to share the Faith, the Saints, how math points to God and His Sacred Order, and more. Finally, his wife discovered (on the internet) Catholic Classical education, and they both fell in love with it! This eventually led to Sacred Heart Academy, where he's thrilled to join the staff as a MS/HS math/science teacher. (He's especially grateful to Ms. Kozack, who made him aware of SHA in the first place!)
