Ms. Elizabeth Lopez

Social Studies Teacher

I have been teaching for nine years. I have been a social studies teacher at Oswego East High School (OEHS) for seven years. I taught for two years at Shepard High School, in Palos Heights, Ill., before coming to OEHS. I have taught a wide array of social studies classes. Most recently I have been teaching the advanced placement human geography course, psychology and modern world history.

My educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Eastern Illinois University, Charleston. I continued my education at National Louis University, Chicago, where I completed my master’s degree in teaching.

I became a teacher because I love to see the progress students make and to share in their accomplishments. There is nothing better than seeing a student you taught as a freshman, four years later walking through graduation. The pride on their face is the reason I teach.
