Brian Butterfield is excited to begin his eleventh year at Lake View with a total of twenty-eight years of teaching experience including teaching prerequisite reading courses at two local junior colleges. He earned his B.A. in Special Education and his first M.A. in Reading from Illinois State University. He earned a second M.A. in Educational Administration from Northeastern University. He is in the English Department teaching English IV classes and a Writing Workshop II class. Mr. Butterfield also served in the Air Force and the Illinois Air National Guard from 1977-1998. His passion for antique stained glass windows turned into a hobby of creating stained glass and fused glass art; he is currently learning how to sew in order to achieve yet another goal and dream of his.
