Mr. Croce joins Leo Catholic High School having taught creative writing in Iowa City and Chicago for numerous years before pivoting to teaching high school English full-time in 2019. He believes that teaching English is, at the end of the day, a vehicle to embolden stronger, more aware, empathetic communicators (who hopefully develop a love for the art of literature). He also believes in a multi-media approach to learning while integrating social-emotional and trauma informed practices. When not at Leo, you can find Mr. Croce on a yoga mat, at a concert, or coaching.
