Teacher and coach
St. Pets and Glenbard West High School
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a local sports all-star stepping on to the dance floor today?
Please give a warm Charger AND Hilltoppers welcome to Coach Christine Giunta-Mayer!
Coach Giunta-Mayer and her husband Nicholas are both graduates of Glenbard West. They have two adopted children from Haiti, De De and John Kelly, who attend St. Pet's where she has been a teacher and Athletic Director for 25 years. If you haven't seen her at one of the schools you might have also caught her at Sunset Pool where she worked for 35 years!
Her masterful coaching, for boys and girls volleyball at Glenbard West, has led the boys to four state titles - the greatest number for the school! And she's no stranger to spotlight herself- she was Homecoming Queen in 1995 at GW and played D1 softball at Loyola Marymount University, in Los Angeles, CA. Stay tuned to see if her favorite dance move, the 'running man', can score her some noteworthy accolades too!
She is a huge supporter of Glen Ellyn Infant welfare and all that they do for children in our area; now it's her turn to give back and show her students and players some of her best moves!
