Mr. Christopher Chiakulas
Hello! My name is Mr. Chiakulas, and I am the College and Career Counselor for grades 6-12 in Round Lake District 116. I have worked in RLAS since 2013 - first as a generalist counselor at RLHS for 2 years and now as the College & Career Counselor since this position was created for the 2015-16 school year. Prior to working in Round Lake I was an Academic Advisor at DePaul University, taught business at Warren Township High School in Gurnee, and have worked in several other jobs in education since 2003.
Some other "fun facts" about me:
- I was selected as the 2018 ACT College & Career Readiness Champion for Illinois (K-12)
- In 2018 I was selected to participate on the Ripon College (WI) School Counselor Advisory Board
- I ran NCAA Division I Cross Country and Track & Field in college (I was a walk-on all 4 years)
