Cliff Moran

Science Teacher & Dept Head
Shannon High School

Out of High school I studied to be an actor in Hollywood California for 8-9 years. After meeting my wife at an improvisation class we decided to move to Chicago to be by her family. I worked at UPS to support us while she went back to school to get her master’s degree in education. When she graduated I went back to school for dentistry, but realizing I didn’t like putting my hands in people’s mouths and seeing my wife really enjoy teaching, I decided to get a Masters degree in education and use my science skills in the classroom. I have been teaching now for over a decade and am loving every minute.
