Dru Filkins

Special Education Teacher

I attended St. Ambrose University, in Davenport, Iowa, where I received my bachelor’s degree in finance and business management, with a minor in economics. After a year in the business world, I got burned out and found my love for teaching, something I should have done from the beginning. I got my master’s degree in special education at Lewis University, in Romeoville, IL, while aiding in the classroom at Scullen Middle School and Metea Valley High School.

This is my nineth year at Oswego East High School where I have co-taught Geometry, Geometry AB, Algebra 2, Civics, Modern World History, US History, and Consumer Education. In extracurricular activities, I have coached football for eleven years, volleyball for eight, and the Robotics Club for a year. Home life has changed for me over the last few years as well. We have 3 beautiful young boys Jameson, Finn, and Keegan. 

I'm looking forward to a fabulous nineth year!
