Mr. Breen received his BFA in Fine Art Photography with a minor in Art History from Columbia College Chicago in 2007. After working in the photo industry and teaching at the Evanston Art Center, he decided to pursue his passion for teaching by earning his teaching license from Northeastern Illinois University. He student taught at Amundsen.
He spent the last 5 years at Sarah E. Goode STEM Academy where he was a part of the award winning MCA S.P.A.C.E. program (School Partnership for Arts and Civic Engagement). Mr. Breen is completing his MA in Digital Communications and Media Arts at DePaul University.
