Mr. Jake Volk

Namaste and welcome to my website!

I'm a Special Educator working with the English Department providing support in Latin American Literature and Writing for College. I also instruct self-contained English 12 World Literature and Writing for College.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English with Highest Honors and my Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education with Highest Honors from Lewis University, Romeoville. I also earned my Learning and Behavior Specialist 1 (LBS1) and Middle-level Language Arts endorsement from Lewis University.

I'm currently studying at local colleges to earn the Middle-level Social Studies and Secondary Education History endorsements. Both of which will be completed by the start of the 2022-2023 academic year.

Additionally, I arrive at RHS with experience as Editor-in-Chief of The Flyer newspaper and former president of several honor societies. I also bring my 7+ years of library experience as a researcher and resource manager.

Stay Strong Spartans!
