Ms. Tania Sharp and Ms. Andrea Parker both hold leadership positions of the assistant principal of curriculum and instruction and the assistant principal of student services, respectively; they exemplified how despite disadvantageous circumstances, women and young girls everywhere can prevail and succeed.
Ms. Beth Prigodich is a national board-certified teacher and WE club sponsor for Oswego High School. She has been teaching for a total of 28 years, with 26 years here at OHS. As a young child, Prigodich lived in many environments and learned the values she applies to her teaching today.
