Montini Catholic welcomes Mr. Chris Tiritilli as our Assistant Principal of Student Services.
Being rooted in Catholic education and a product of diocesan schools from elementary through high school, Chris is very excited to join the Montini Catholic Bronco community. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education from DePaul University, and Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from Lewis University.
He joins the Montini community after serving as Principal at St. Mary of Gostyn School in Downers Grove for the past six years and Principal at Holy Family Catholic School in Bensenville for two years prior to that.
As Assistant Principal for Student Services, Chris will work closely with the school's Counselors, Deans and Social Worker, to ensure that Montini is able to continue to meet the individual needs of all students. Additionally, he will assist in overseeing the transfer student process, school safety and scheduling. "Ultimately, his addition will further enhance our student experience at Montini and help ensure student success in and out of the classroom," said Principal Kevin Bierne.
"There's no doubt that Chris will have a tremendously positive impact on our students' experiences at Montini," adds Principal Beirne. "News of his addition to our school community was loudly and exuberantly praised by the many families, students, and colleagues who have had the opportunity to cross paths with him in his previous roles. I look forward to the rest of the Montini school community getting to know the school leader so many others have come to respect, admire, and appreciate."
Chris and wife, Alexandria, are the proud parents of two year old Gia, and nine-month old Vince. His favorite pastime is spending time with his family. He also enjoys playing music and staying active.
"In getting to know Chris, it's clear that he has a knack for building consensus, has tremendous attention to detail, relates well with students, is a natural communicator, and has the experience needed to ensure we're meeting the needs of today's learners. What's more, though new to the Lasallian tradition of education, he clearly embodies and is animated by our charism."
"I am very proud to join the Montini community!" says Chris. " I have enjoyed working in the office a bit throughout July, and and even more excited to begin working with our students and staff as the new year begins. I am blessed to already know some of our students at Montini from my time at St. Mary of Gostyn School, and am eager to get to know all of our students! I am a student-centered administrator and am looking forward to my role of Assistant Principal for Student Services, and supporting the staff and students of MCHS! I am very happy to be a Bronco!"
