Mr. John Flynn
My wife (Darlene) and I moved to Bolingbrook in January 1991 because we wished to raise our children in a vibrant and diverse community. At that time I was owner of a computer consulting firm, Franklin Systems. Through expansion we grew to 12 employees, renamed the company to Callero Management Information Services (CMIS) and relocated the firm to Niles and eventually to Oak Brook, though our residence remained in Bolingbrook.
My wife and I became actively involved in the community as she served on the Wood View PTA as well as treasurer of VVEEF. I coached multiple sports and was a member of the Little League board of directors and also president of the Bolingbrook Athletic Club for eight years. Our two children, Matthew (BHS 2006) and Andrew (2009) excelled in school and also enjoyed participating in scouting and various sports programs.
In 2003 I was approached by a large Chicago based consulting company about merging our firms. Instead, I chose to sell the company and went back to school in order to earn my teaching certificate, with the dream of teaching within the Valley View school district. I have now completed my 11th year at BHS (13 years within VVSD), and could not be happier at my life choice. It is an honor working in this district and I look forward to interacting with the young men and women of our community on a daily basis.
