Ms. Jill Albright
As a Kinetic Wellness teacher, I am committed to providing a quality wellness education program. My mission is to enhances social development, establish mental and physical health and teach the values of teamwork, responsibility, self-discipline and self-motivation.
My primary goal at Oswego East is to promote and develop youth fitness, and assist our students in achieving personal and athletic success. I am dedicated to giving all students the chance to improve their many unique skills associated with fitness, nutrition and overall health. In addition, I am interested in our students personal development and will strive to bring out the best in them. I encourage my students to be respectful, responsible, disciplined and have a positive attitude.
I have been a fitness professional for 20 years. I graduated from Southern Illinois University with my Bachelors in Physical Education and a Specialization in Exercise Science. Since then I have achieved my Masters Degree in Secondary Education from Univeristy of Phoenix. Prior to teaching, I worked at Bally Total Fitness in various positions leading up to my last role as a Training and Development Superivisor for the Midwest Region. It was during that time, that I started coaching badminton at the high school level. In 2009, I started working at Lockport High School.
As my career continued, I continued my love for personal training and nutrition. Currently, I hold a Masters certification through National Academy of Sports Medicine with various specializations in Personal Training, Corrective Exercise, Youth Exercise, Senior Fitness Specialist, USA Weighlifting and SAQ (speed, agility and quickness) training and triathlon coach. In addition, I am a nutrition coach certification from Precision Nutrition and Institute of Integrative Nutrtion.
On a personal note, I am married to my wonderful husband, Jeff and have 2 children, Tyler and Alexis. We live in Lockport, IL where my husband works and my kids attend school. I continue to pursue fitness by competing in marathons and triathlons. Most recently, I completed Ironman Kentucky in 2019.
I am very excited to be a part of Oswego East High School and look forward to helping our students achieve their goals and setting them up for success!
