Mr. Doug Kotlarczyk

This will be my first full year here at Magee. Last year, I taught 7th grade Language Arts here during 2nd semester. For the last several years before that I taught history and social studies at Lake Forest High School in Lake Forest and at the Illinois Math & Science Academy in Lake Forest. I first began teaching as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Romania in the early 2000s, and have also taught on a couple of Fulbright grants, one to the Republic of Moldova and one to the Philippines. I'm very happy to be part of the Magee family.


Students & parents can find all relevant class information on our Google Classroom page. Unfortunately, you do need an email address to register for Classroom, so parents will need to log in with their child's device or log-on information.


The best way to reach me is by email at I'll respond to all emails sent during the school day before the end of that day; I may not get to something sent later until the following day.
