Meet Our 2017-2018 Secondary School SOCIAL STUDIES Department!


Maggie Deady is beginning her fourth year at St. Benedict Preparatory School.  She attended the University of Dayton, receiving a degree in secondary social studies education with minors in history and theater.  After years of teaching students theology she is looking forward to the move into social studies.  Ms. Deady is returning to her first love, history, and can’t wait to inspire a new generation of historians!


David McQuade earned his Bachelor of Arts in History and English from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas. This year will be his tenth year in education and his sixth year at St. Benedict. The most exciting part of his job is seeing students working together to create great things. He enjoys spending time with his family, running, and learning about the history of Chicago.
