Mroz, a computer science teacher and girls swimming coach at Buffalo Grove, decided his students should learn how to write code for the computers they were using rather than learning a language they had little use for during their high school days. That decision led to Mroz and Hersey teacher Bob Brown being named 2017 Apple Distinguished Educators for their work with Apple and Township High School District 214. Read Story
