8th Grade Teachers

Mr. Navarro – Room 222

Hi There. My name is John D Navarro. I am proud and extremely happy to teach at De Diego. I have been teaching for 23 years of my life and 21 of them have been here at Diego. Currently I am part of the eighth grade team (which is awesome by the way), although I have taught 5th, 6th, and 7th as well. I have a Masters degree in education and a ton of experiences that have helped format my professional life, and enabled my teaching goals. I love this job today as much as I loved it when I started, so I am looking forward to another great year. I bid the Diego staff and students a very successful school year.

Mr. Prince – Room 228

My name is William Chrobak-Prince aka Mr. Prince. I was born on September 8th in 1961. I grew up near Diego and attended Chase Elementary and Lane Tech. After spending 6 years in the United States Navy I enrolled in College at UIC and received a degree in elementary education. While attending college I met and married Teresa Chrobak. Thats where the hyphenated name comes from! Teresa is also a teacher. We have 3 beautiful children Ben, Julian and Annika. We love to travel and even enjoy a little hiking and camping. Utah is a breathtaking place!

I currently hold a Masters Degree from UIC and teach Math and Algebra in the 8th grade. I have been at Diego for almost 19 years now. Although I enjoy teaching math, I really love the kids. It is an honor that parents let me help shape and mold their children. I only hope that I do your children justice.
