Special Education Teacher
I am Mr. Townsley I was born in Chicago, and raised in Wilmette. I attended New Trier High School class of 1983. I received a BA in Applied Psychology, and a MEd. in Learning Behavior Specialist LD/BD both from Loyola University. I spent 11 years teaching sailing for the Chicago Park District, and 6 years as a social worker in Uptown. This will be my 16th year at Wells, and my 18th year teaching overall. I am very excited about my classes and teaching algebra and biology this year!
My goal for my students is to prepare them for the challenges and rigor of a college classroom or for any post secondary field of their choosing. This will be done through hard work and dedication to practice. I want my students focused in a distraction free classroom every day. I believe all students are capable of success. I am the 11th and 12th Grade Level Leader and a member of the Student Success Team.
