Mr. Kevin Butler
My name is Kevin Butler. I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii to parents that were in the Army and lived in a few different places before settling in Danville, Illinois. I graduated from Danville High School in 1990 and enlisted to serve actively in the United States Marine Corps as an Infantryman/Security Forces. I deployed to two combat tours, Mogadishu, Somalia and Port-au-Prince, Haiti. My military experience opened my eyes to the plight of many people, especially children, who needed help. This led me on a path to keep doing my part in service and becoming a teacher. So, following my service and some trials and errors, I attended Illinois State University and earned a Bachelors of Science in Education Degree and obtained my Masters in Reading and Literacy Degree from Walden University. Since, I have been a teacher for 16 years at various grade levels teaching a variety of subjects in Illinois and Georgia. I am very excited and honored to be a 6th grade Science teacher here at GMS, home of the Mustangs!
