About Me

           Welcome to my page!  My name is Mike DeGroot.  I am a longtime resident of New Lenox(48 years) and a graduate of both NLSD 122 and Lincoln Way Community High School District 210. I attended Lewis University where I earned a bachelor's degree in special education.  I also earned a master's degree from Olivet Nazarene University. I work with students at Oster-Oakview School in the morning and students at Haines in the afternoon.  I have been married to Stacey for 27 years, and we have two boys.  Michael is 22 years old and is a graduate of NLSD 122, LWCHS and the University of Louisville with a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering. He is continuing at Louisville to complete a master's degree in electrical engineering (MEng).  Mitchell is 16 years old and is also a NLSD 122 graduate. He is a junior at Lincoln Way Central. We also have a goldendoodle named Faythe.  She is 4 years old and full of energy!
