<I graduated from Illinois State University in 1979 with a B.A. in Foreign Languages, Spanish major and French minor. I received my M.A. from ISU in 1985 in Foreign Languages. This is my 37th year of teaching and I have enjoyed every one of them! I have taught at Shepard High School, Heyworth High School, LeRoy High School, and for the last 32 years I have taught in the Olympia School District. I have taught all levels of Spanish and French. I have also taught math and science. Currently I am teaching Spanish 1 and Spanish 2. Each year, I am a national grader for the AP Spanish Exam.
My coaching career includes: Football, Basketball, Baseball, Track, Chess and Scholastic Bowl. Currently I coach Shot Put and Discus in track. I also coach Chess and Scholastic Bowl.
I am a former Olympia Graduate (1975). I had the privilege of teaching with my wife Carolyn at OHS for 28 years. My daughter, Dr. Staci Kong (2000) and my son Joshua Hieronymus (2003) were both Valedictorians of Olympia High School. I now am enjoying my grandchildren Azul 6, Jacinth 5, and Magenta 3. >
