Mr. Brian Mil
Hello, I am the Art Teacher at Homestead Elementary! I have taught every Grade level so far, but I keep coming back to the Elementary level because I love these kids. I love teaching kids Art and I love drawing when I'm not. Even though I reside in Westmont, IL with my wife and son, participating in a lot of events and activities makes me feel like family in this community.
I am originally from New Jersey, but came to Illinois for family. I went to Seton Hall University for Art History and Montclair State for K-12 Art Education. I have been teaching since 2010 and have been at Homestead since 2014. I am experienced in almost every medium of Art from weaving, printmaking, almost every graphic design program, crochet, clay, mix media painting, and so on... I don't plan on leaving anytime soon and I am honored to teach your kids from when they start at Kindergarten all the way until 5th Grade when they leave :)
At Homestead, I have done many of the murals you see inside and outside of the school. I have also been in charge of the yearbook for quite a few years. I have done afterschool classes in the past, but plan to do them again in the near future. I have also helped with a variety of events such as Veterans Day, Fun Fair, Grandparents Day, Career Day, and more. I try and stay engaged with all my students and parents as best as possible, so feel free to contact me by email anytime you wish.
