David Tucker, M.Ed.

9th and 10th Grade Counselor // Student Last Names K-Z

My name is David Tucker. This is my second year at Amundsen. I am privileged to work with the students and families in the Amundsen community.
I’m originally from the south suburbs of Chicago. I attended New York University, where I majored in comparative literature and art history. I completed my master’s degree in counseling at DePaul University.
I believe that the teenage years are the most formative years in a person’s life. I help students navigate through their high school experiences, from addressing how to be successful in school to helping
them plan for their future. 

After college, I lived in New York City, where I worked for arts, non-profit, and educational organizations, including the NYU School of Law. I moved home to Chicago in 2012. Prior to joining the counseling department at Amundsen, I worked as an administrator at Lurie Children’s Hospital.  I am married and have two small children.
