Mr. Brian Fauth
This year marks my 22nd year teaching for District #308, and my first as a junior high teacher. I spent my years previous as an elementary school teacher, teaching fifth grade at East View and Grande Park. For approximately eight years I also served as a gifted education teacher throughout the district. As I enter into the final third of my professional teacher career, I was looking for a change that would refresh and strengthen my teaching skills and also challenge me to learn about an entirely new aspect of teaching. And so I now teach junior high History and English Language Arts.
My schedule is as follows:
Traughber Junior High (AM)
1st/2nd period: 6th grade English Language Arts
3rd period: 8th grade American History
Travel, Lunch, Prep
Plank Junior High (PM)
7th8th period: 8th grade English Language Arts
9th period: 8th grade American History
I am also heavily involved in the theatre communities of Oswego and Aurora/Chicago. I am the founder and former Artistic Director of The Limelight Theatre Company, the Oswegoland Park District's youth theatre program. I have also managed drama programs for Sandwich High School, Bednarcik and Plank Junior Highs, and Storm Dance Alliance over the years. I currently am the owner and Artistic Director of New Place Theatre, a semi-professional company I started this year. I am currently managing the revived Plank Drama Program.
