Alumni X-Change: The Changing Role of the Modern Teacher
On April 19, David Hollander, '89, addressed an audience of educators and students at the Alumni X-Change: The Changing Role of the Modern Teacher.
Hosted by the SXU Office of Alumni and Parent Relations and the School of Education, Hollander spoke on the importance of networking. An eighth-grade social studies teacher at Kennedy Junior High School in Lisle, Hollander has taught for over 20 years, coaches sports and enjoys acting in community theater.
Networking, he stressed, among different professions, will not only enrich the vocation of the educator but with also enhance the educational experience of the student.
A colleague quoted, "He teaches kids, he doesn't teach subjects."
Hollander was awarded the Golden Apple in 2005 and received the Saint Xavier University George K. McGuire Award for excellence in teaching in 2007.
