Teresa Curtin, 43, has lived in Des Plaines her whole life. She is a mother of three, an IT tech, softball coach, former Girl Scout leader, chauffeur and self-described parent-extraordinaire.
On Thursday afternoon Curtin coached a Des Plaines Park District girls’ softball league team at Iroquois North field next to the Administrative and Leisure Center. The game was short-lived, as heavy rains drew in after a couple innings, which gave Curtin a moment to answer a few questions.
