Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Nicholas Buono
I attended Illinois State University, Normal, where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education, with endorsements in reading and social studies. I then earned my master’s degree from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill., in Educational Leadership. I taught at Lakewood Creek for 12 years, and am SO excited to be at Thompson in my new role as Restorative Justice Coordinator and teacher of the Return to Learn Room!
I am blessed to be teaching in District 308. To be able to borrow a parent's most prized possession and stretch his or her ideas and thoughts to places he or she never knew existed is truly a beautiful things that I don't take lightly. Partnering with parents, staff, and community allows me to give each individual child the ability to grow up and fulfill his or her idea of success.
I'm looking forward to an extremely successful year in every way possible!
