Hello! I am Michael Arrigoni and I am currently a Special Education Teacher here at West Leyden. In particular, I am based in the LIFE 080 and 116 classrooms and teach young adults essential life skills to become independent in life after transition. I am a recent graduate from Eastern Illinois University and I am so blessed to call Leyden my home. My passion and ambition for helping all students, especially those who have special needs, is what keeps me going every single day. Currently, I am the Sophomore Girls Basketball Assistant Coach and also assist the atheletic department in anyway possible for events that are held. The Leyden community has been nothing but wonderful, welcoming, and helpful as I adjust to my first year of teaching.
