Ms. Sarah Carlson
My name is Sarah Carlson and I joined the Oswego High School staff in 2009. I received my undergraduate degree in business from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, in 2003. After a two-year career in marketing, I decided to go back to school and earned my master’s degree in special education from the University of Phoenix, Chicago, in 2009. After college, I worked as a substitute teacher in District 308, and I found out that I really enjoyed working in a classroom. I joined the staff here in 2009, and I haven’t looked back!
After 8 years as a special education teacher, I now teach in the Career and Technical Education Department as a Business teacher (Business Law 1, Business Law 2, and Consumer Education). I love teaching real-world skills and meaningful curriculum. This job is never boring, and I love working with students, helping them strengthen their skills until they have that “aha” moment that makes teaching so rewarding. I truly enjoy working at Oswego High School. Whether coaching girls track and field or teaching in the classroom, I find something to celebrate every single day. Go Panthers!
