Mr. Petrando is in his first year teaching Music Keyboarding at Wheaton North, and is in his third year teaching Music at Edison Middle School. Prior to teaching in CUSD 200, he completed his student teaching at Hinsdale Central High School in Hinsdale, where he taught choir, and Margaret Mead Junior High School in Elk Grove Village, where he taught choir and general music. He completed his undergraduate degree at Illinois Wesleyan University in December 2017, earning a Bachelor of Music Education. In college, he was the president and music director of his acapella group, "Suspended", and sang in the Collegiate Choir, which toured around the United States and France during his four years in the ensemble. He is excited for his first year at Wheaton North, and is most looking forward to meeting and working with the students!
