Welcome to Morton High School home of the Mustangs! I began my administrative career at Morton as a Dean of Students and Student Activities Director at the East Campus. I am proud to be a part of Morton's continued dedication to excellence that extends to extracurricular activities and competitive athletic programs. Involvement in athletics and activities serve as extensions of the classroom, and it is my goal to continue to provide opportunities to enhance student learning and build citizenship. Great things are happening in District 201. We have a rich history at Morton and are proud of our Mustangs past and present, "once a Mustang, always a Mustang." I look forward to seeing you in our stands proudly wearing maroon and white. "It's always a great day to be a Mustang!"

¡Bienvenido a Morton!  Es un orgullo ser parte de la comunidad Morton.

I began my career as an ELL and Bilingual teacher at Morton West and later at Morton East, where I served as the Lead Teacher.  The great experiences I have had with students and staff at Morton always inform my work as the director of English Learner and Modern Language Departments.  We believe that being bilingual and biliterate is an asset that our students bring to Morton.  We encourage students to develop their literacy in more than one language to promote understanding of themselves, their community and the world.

Greetings! My name is Jim Monaco, and I am proud and excited to be entering my second year as the Director of English Language Arts and Media Services at Morton High School District 201. I have fourteen years of experience as a high school English teacher and high school administrator in the Chicagoland area, many of those years spent working with students, adults, and community leaders to ensure our schools provide a rich learning experience for all students. Along with my English Language Arts and Media Services colleagues, I believe strongly in the power of reading and writing as transformative experiences. All students deserve opportunities to find their voices through authentic literacy experiences, and it is our mission at Morton 201 to make those experiences a reality. ¡Muchisimas gracias!

Welcome to Morton! I have had the privilege of spending my entire career here as a Mustang. I began as a History teacher at the Freshman Center, and through my experience in the technical world and with 1:1, I became one of the first TSI teachers in the district, and was on many committees during the beginning stages of 1:1. After teaching TSI for a few years, I transitioned into my current role as Director of Instructional Technology. In this position, I hope to continue providing our students with equitable access to technology and the 21st Century skills that will help them thrive in a competitive post-secondary world.
