Mr. Chu is a Chicago native and is a product of Chicago Public Schools.He attended the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Accountancy. He worked in public accounting for several years, but found his calling in education soon after and received a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Concordia University Chicago. He taught several years in CPS before working as an industry program manager for IBM under their P-TECH program. The program worked with underserved communities and offered internship and job opportunities to many first-generation college students.

Lastly, he worked briefly at the University of Chicago and their Career Advancement office before deciding to return to the classroom.
