My name is Don Lang, this is my 28th year teaching, and 18th year at Eastview!
Although my family currently lives in Bartlett, I was born in Chicago, raised in Mount Prospect, and graduated from Prospect High School in 1984.
I received my Bachelor's Degree from Illinois State University, Master's Degree in Education from National Louis University, and English as a Second Language (ESL) Certificate from the American College of Education.
While in college, I was an M-60 tank crewman in the U.S. Army Reserves and to this day I still enjoy all aspects of military history.
I am married to my beautiful wife, Patricia Rose, and own two rescue dogs (Butkus and Winston).
My interests are many...I love all kinds of music, play a little bass guitar and run sound for several local bands. I like football, coffee, reading, high-tech gadgets, Jeeps, cars, classic movies, handyman work, and all kinds of food! My wife and I run a non-profit that raises money to aid animal rescue (www.thefete.org).
As a teacher I try to be fair and flexible...yet very consistent. You will find that I am very laid-back, and I strive to have a fun and enjoyable classroom. If you want to do well in my class, you will need to listen to directions. pay attention to detail, and put forth honest effort.
I look forward to having you in my class and to seeing my former students come and visit
