Mr. Brian Melvin

Last Names A - HARS


I attended North Park University in Chicago and studied PE.  I ended up receiving my Associates Degree from Elgin Community College and then achieved my bachelors degree in Business Administration-Management.  I received my Masters degree in School Counseling from National Louis University.  I have been a counselor at St. Charles East (internship) and East Aurora.  


This is my first year at Central and I am so happy to be a counselor and Head Football Coach!  ROCKET UP!

Mrs. Rachel Rodriguez

Last Names HART - PES


I started my professional career as a Social Worker after earning my BSW from Illinois State University. I spent several years working in the Community setting until I decided to pursue my Masters degree in School Counseling at Loyola University. I completed an internship at Larkin High School and spent last year at South Elgin High working in the Counseling Department. I love working one on one with students as well as running small groups.


In addition to working with students on my caseload with last names Hart-Pes, I will be the school's Advanced Placement coordinator,  and Peer Leader coordinator. Outside of my passion for working with students and families, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my 5 nieces and 4 nephews and I love playing or watching all sports!

Mr. Matt Tevere

Last Names PET - Z


I grew up in Tinley Park and Frankfort (south suburb of Chicago) gaining a love for psychology and education at Lincoln-Way. I knew the education field was the intellectually stimulating environment I wanted to have a career with and helping people was my career goal throughout high school. I soon graduated from NIU with a Bachelor's in Psychology in 2006, followed by graduating from Saint Xavier with a Master's in School Counseling with Honors, Kappa Delta Pi in 2011. I worked for 5 years as a school counselor with the bulk of my experience at LWASE 843 specializing in counseling, transition, special ed, and acting as a college liaison between Lincoln-Way and Joliet Junior College.


One of my mottos is to never stop learning and improving. In April 2016, I did just that by receiving my National Certified Counselor/National Certified School Counselor endorsements, one of the highest endorsements for a school counselor. I am currently working on my Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor certification.


In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies and baseball (Cubs), practicing yoga, and playing softball and volleyball.
