Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Adam Thurlwell
Math Department Chair
I attended Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill., where I received my bachelor’s degree in mathematics with an emphasis in education. I taught for a semester at East Aurora High School after I graduated midyear from Aurora University. From there, I was hired to teach at Oswego East High School in 2006. While learning more about this trade, I earned my master's degree in educational administration from Governor's State University, Chicago. Then, in 2012, I became chair of the math department. Along the way, I've been the head girls varsity volleyball coach at Oswego East High School since 2008. I am also an event coordinator for our athletic department.
