Eric Kallenborn was born on a warm May morning in 1977.  His first car was a 1994 Chevy Cavalier RS (teal with a spoiler).  
In high school, Mr. Kallenborn won the Golden Apple Award for future teachers; he was the first student at Reavis High School to win that award.
Mr. Kallenborn attended DePaul University after high school and finished his undergrad at Governors State University, and since then has received two masters degrees: one in English and one in Administration.
He has been teaching for twelve years with the last ten being here at wonderful ABS.  Currently, Mr. Kallenborn teaches AP Language & Composition, Film & Literature, Graphic Novels, and Creative Writing.
He offers retakes on all 65% assignments, for full credit, as long as initial drafts have been turned in by a reasonable time determined by teacher and student.  Retakes may take place before school, after school, or during lunch periods.   
Currently the Head Chess Coach, Game Club sponsor, Head Group Interp Coach, Homecoming Committee member, and Drama Club sponsor, Eric has no time for an outside life during the school year, but with no children of his own, he is happy to devote most of his time to the Alan B. Shepard family.
