Ms. Brenda Shay

I have been teaching social studies at Oswego High School since 2003. I have taught modern world history, U.S. history, political science and contemporary issues. I have a bachelor's degree in social studies from North Central College, Naperville, Ill., and a master's degree in educational leadership from Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill. I am also the head advisor of the Youth and Government program after school in conjunction with the Illinois YMCA. The program seeks to make democracy a hands-on experience for students.
