Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Vicente Pena
The 2018-19 school year is my first year at St. Joseph High School. My continued education and coaching experience has prepared me for my roles as the school's athletic director and phyical education teacher.
After attending Elgin High School and Larkin High School, I joined the workforce as a teen. I began my post-secondary education five years later. I continued my studies at Elgin Community College, where I received an Associate Degree in Science, and at Northern Illinois University.
My coaching career includes eleven years of coaching basketball, volleyball and baseball (both boys and girls) at St. Joseph Catholic School, St. Edward Central High School, Elgin Academy, and Wheeling High School. Between 2007-2010, I also coached under Pat Summit at the Tennessee Women's Basketball Day Camp.
