Mr. Nicholas Cherwin


Hello, my name is Nicholas Cherwin and I have been the special education teacher with the G.O.A.L Program for approximately nine years. During my time with District 308, I have also taught math and English. One of my personal favorite activities that I was able to participate in was coaching a basketball team within our program that competed against other local alternative education programs.

I was born and raised in Joliet, Illinois where I attended Joliet Catholic Academy and played football winning a state championship in 2007. After high school, I continued to play football at Loras College where I graduated with a degree in special education and creative writing. I enjoy working out and running and spend my weekends and summers with my girlfriend, friends, and family. I have just completed my degree in educational leadership from Aurora University. I look forward to working with our students, parents, and community and am available to answer any questions or comments via email at
