Meet Our Staff
Mr. Green grew up in Vermont where he was an All-State cross country and track and field athlete. After graduating from Burlington High School he went on to run cross country and track and field in the NCAA at The College of Wooster while earning his undergraduate degree in international relations. Upon graduating from college he spent two years coaching high school track and field and serving as a Program Coordinator for Playworks, a national elementary school health and fitness initiative, in Boston, Massachusetts. After leaving Playworks he entered a graduate program in kinesiology at Michigan State University where he studied various elements of sports, exercise and health, constructed a thesis on aerobic exercise and strength training and served as an Assistant Coach with the championship winning MSU Cross Country and Track and Field programs. As a graduate student he also taught a variety of undergraduate sports and conditioning classes. Still an avid runner and lover of all things food, Mr. Green is new to the city of Chicago but is excited to explore all of the outdoor activities, and restaurants, that the city has to offer.
Ms. Meraz is a proud Latina born and raised in the Northwest side of Chicago. She’s also a proud alum of Noble Street College Prep. She attended my first year of college at the University of Illinois at Springfield. She then chose to attend Northeastern Illinois University to pursue a major in social work. One of the reasons why she came back to the Noble Network was because this is her second family. She feels so comfortable working with the students and parents because she knows the culture here. She loves to explore the city, eat at new restaurants and discover all the secrets that Chicago has to offer. Chicago offers many cool sites and places that are not only fun but educational. She is very proud to become a new member of the Griffin family and cannot wait to explore, learn, and grow here.
