Mr. Michael Gibson, Junior High Social Studies

Hello!  My name is Michael Gibson and I am excited to be returning for my 2nd year at St. John Fisher. I am eager to work with the wonderful 7th and 8th grade students in Social Studies. We will have a great year with much success!

A bit about myself:

  • I grew up in Bolingbrook and attended St. Dominic School from K through 8th grade.
  • I attended Montini Catholic in Lombard. (4x State Champs in wrestling!)
  • I recently graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a BA in Teaching of History.
  • My daughter, Michaela, will be attending PreK at SJF!
