Ms. Pamela Phelps
I enjoy learning! I earned a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s degree in secondary teaching from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill. I completed my master’s degree in biology at Northern Illinois University, DeKalb. I have also taken several classes at Waubonsee Community College, Sugar Grove, Ill. I am fortunate to have had many excellent teachers and mentors during my childhood years in Yorkville, my college years, and during my career at Oswego High School.
I began my teaching career at Oswego High School in 1997 and I have been a proud Panther ever since. My goal as a teacher is to help students become independent thinkers and lifelong learners. I share my love of science with them and hope that they wonder about the world around them. I aim to give students the power to think critically and trust in themselves. I am thrilled to be in a profession where I can fulfill my love of learning and pass it on to others.
