The industrial technology department welcomes a new addition: Jarod Battisto. Jarod grew up in Carol Stream and attended Glenbard North High School. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University of Technology and Engineering Education where he was president of the Technology and Engineering Education Collegiate Association. He then interned at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.
This semester Jarod teaches Graphic Design 1, Graphic Design Productions, Woods 1, and Introduction to Engineering Design. Next semester Jarod will teach classes for Autos Maintenance and Autos Essentials. In addition to teaching, Jarod hopes to help with scenery for the theater program. His ultimate goal is to create a geometry in construction course and teach electronic classes. Jarod said the best part of Oak Lawn Community High School is the awesome students who are always ready to learn and be challenged. He is also proud of the amazing labs in the industrial tech department.
