Dean of Sophomore Students
Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Matt Sugrue
Dear Royal Students and Families,
My name is Matt Sugrue and I am the Sophomore Dean of Students at Larkin High School for the 2021-2022 school year. This is my second year serving as a dean at Larkin. Before that, I spent the past eight years as a social studies teacher and administrator at two charter schools in the Englewood and North Lawndale communities in the City of Chicago. Over my career, I am most proud of my efforts to close the achievement gap, provide an equitable experience for my students and work closely with students and their families to participate in and build restorative justice programs.
I received my undergraduate degree in History and Secondary Education from the University of Illinois and received my master’s degree in Educational Policy and Leadership and my principal endorsement from Northern Illinois University.
In my personal life, I am blessed to be married to a wonderful wife, Laura, and to be the father of an 18-month-old son, Leo. When Leo lets me have free time, I enjoy reading, studying history, and watching my beloved Chicago sports teams.
As a Dean of Students, I take my responsibility to provide our students with a safe and supportive environment seriously. To those ends, I would also like to extend the invitation to you to partner with me in this work as I cannot do that alone. Please feel free to call or email anytime or stop by my office located in the dean's office, L48D. I look forward to meeting all of you soon. Go Royals!
