Tom Kalal – Physical Ed. & A. D.

Education:  I attended Zion Lutheran School in Hinsdale, IL for grades K-8.  After Zion, I attended Downers Grove South High School.  I attended college at Concordia in River Forest.

Teaching Experience:  The 2017-2018 school year marks my 33rd year in the teaching ministry.

Years at St. John’s:  This is my 18th year at St. John’s.

Favorite Bible Verse:  Psalm 46:1.  “The Lord is our Refuge and Strength and ever present help in times of trouble.”  It reminds me that God is always with me and there for me whenever I need Him.

When I attended grade school, I was influenced by some outstanding teachers that led me to be a teacher.  I enjoy coaching and especially like to see athletes using their God given ability to use the talents He has given them to their fullest.

I enjoy all sports especially golf and bowling.  I also enjoy watching television.  I also enjoy going to the movies.

One fun fact:  I like to collect PEZ dispensers and have a small display in my office.  The PEZ candy is good too!
