Steve Proutsos


Steve Proutsos is an English teacher at Lincoln-Way High School District 210. He enjoys teaching, writing, coaching, and spending as much time as possible with his wife and three daughters. He grew up in Palos Heights, Illinois and is the oldest of three children. He played basketball and baseball throughout his adolescent years. He started teaching in the fall of 2005 at Lincoln-Way Central High School and coached baseball, basketball, and track. He grew up a Chicago Cubs fan and loves to go to the ballpark with his wife and his three daughters.

When it comes to writing, Steve loves to take his experiences as a husband, father, son, educator, and coach and relive them through his characters. He will cherish and remember every time he and his wife held their three daughters for the very first time, but those three experiences not only solidified some of the most beautiful memories he will ever have, but it also helped him realize that writing about love, hope, perseverance, and family is now part of his life.

When Steve gets older, he hopes to instill in his daughters the love, knowledge, and aspirations that his parents and grandparents have done for him throughout his life. Steve now resides in Tinley Park, Illinois with his wife Colleen, his three daughters, Hailey, Emily, and Lily, and their fun-loving yellow Labrador, Wrigley.
