TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Bruce Janu has been teaching for over 20 years in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. He has taught social science and literature.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Originally a theater major, Bruce has used those theatrical skills and applied them to the classroom where he often dresses in costumes, sings songs and acts out scenes from plays.
