Mike Saracini is currently a 7th/8th grade Social Studies at Freedom Middle School in Berwyn, IL, just outside of Chicago. He is a career changer and worked in radio broadcasting for over 15 years before realizing his dream of entering the classroom. The skills he learned while in broadcasting have definitely helped him keep an engaged classroom and have students learn in a different way. If you ask any previous students about him they will tell you, “He’s not your typical teacher”. A label Mike takes pride in.
