My name is Sean Blackwood. I started teaching at Crete Monee High School in 2015. Teaching has been a passion of mine since I was in high school. Math always came easy to me, and one of my goals is to make math easy for my students.
I received a bachelor's degree from Saint Xavier University in Chicago in 2015. My passion for mathematics grew while attending SXU. I was privileged to learn from many wonderful teachers, which only increased my knowledge of mathematics and my love for it.
Not only do I teach math at Crete Monee High School, I am the Girls’ Varsity Volleyball Coach. I also coach volleyball for Ultimate Volleyball Club. I have worked with children as young as nine or ten all the way through 12th-grade athletes who are preparing for their collegiate volleyball careers. Working with children is something I knew I wanted to do when I chose my profession. Bringing a smile to their face daily is a goal I try to achieve. Making a difference in the life of a child lasts a lifetime and is something they will never forget.
