Mr. Nick McLaughlin

I am excited to be teaching English and coaching at LaSalle-Peru High School. I was born and raised in Ottawa, Illinois and am graduate from Marquette High School. I briefly attended Elmhurst College, but transferred to the University of Illinois at Chicago to experience the diversity of Chicago and finish my Bachelor's degree in the teaching of English. Upon earning my degree, I taught and coached at Dakota Jr./Sr. High School (a rural school northwest of Rockford, IL). It is very humbling to be able to share my knowledge with the students and play a small role in their development to adulthood. I am proud to be back in the Illinois Valley, no longer a Crusader, but as a Cavalier! GO CAVS!
