My name is Garry Graham and I am a Business Tech teacher for all three grades at RLMS. I am now in my 8th year of teaching after an extensive business management career. I worked in telecommunications and information technology for more than 20 years and my role was to lead sales engineering teams. I also spent four years in the U.S. Air Force working on nuclear missile systems. I have a Masters degree in Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Marketing along with my Masters of Elementary Education certification.
I decided to change careers because I knew that I had the most fun when I was teaching others and helping them to see beyond themselves. I am excited to be teaching Math at RLMS and I know that I made the right career choice. This year, I am also leading a new club for RLMS called the Career Club. I will be helping students explore career options and what it takes to achieve their goals.
I am married with three grown children. My youngest has already become a teacher herself and she teaches in a bilingual 3rd grade classroom. My hobby is music and I am in a local classic rock cover band playing music around the Lake/McHenry county area.
