Senior Collection and Distribution Specialist
Nick has spent most of his professional career working with children of all ages. He is a certified teacher and taught middle school science for four years. Nick also spent nearly 10 years assisting special needs children as an aid for his local park district. Bernie’s Book Bank has given Nick a chance to get back to making children’s lives better again. He believes nothing is more important to a child’s education than reading, and book ownership is the key to growing the skill of reading. Nick also tutors high school students in preparation for the ACT.
A father of three, Nick understands the impact Bernie’s Book Bank has on families that can’t give their children books. Books have been an integral part of his and his children’s lives, and he is proud to be a part of something so vital for Chicagoland’s children’s education and well-being.
