Charles Hawkinson

I teach Business Leadership, Internet Marketing, and Career Preparedness. My objective is to prepare students to be college- and career-ready by equipping them with the skills needed for business and industry, continuing education, and life-long learning.

I am married, with two grown daughters and three grandchildren, and one great-grandson on the way. I was born and raised in Chicago. I am a lifelong White Sox, Bears, Bulls, and Blackhawks fan. I enjoy spending time with my family, working in the yard, grilling, studying history, and doing genealogy. I look forward to working with everyone in the Grissom family. Go Tigers!!!
