Jack Barrett

History & English Teacher/Mentor

Jack is a History and English teacher here in Lake Forest and originally comes from the Northwest suburb of Trout Valley. He left the Chicago area for college and studied History and Political Science in the even colder Midwestern city of Minneapolis to attend the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. While there, he developed a passion for education while working with new students adjusting to college life by becoming a peer mentor and Teacher’s Assistant, and volunteering as a tutor at St. Paul public schools. Jack spends his free time listening to and playing music, collecting vinyl, and reading.
