Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Cody Fleming
Hello! I am originally from Michigan and have lived on the shores of three of the Great Lakes. I am three-time graduate of Northern Michigan University. I have earned a B.S. in Social Studies and English Secondary Education ('04), an M.A. in English Writing and Literature ('09), and an M.A.E. in Secondary Instruction ('18). I have experience teaching Modern World History, U.S. History, Psychology, Civics, U.S. History By Decade, Creative Writing, English 7, English 8, English 9, English 10, English 11, Accelerated English 11, American Literature, Composition, Contemporary American Literature, and English I. This year I am teaching Modern World History, English I, and U.S. History By Decades. I am very excited for my schedule!
I am also active outside of the classroom. I am the varsity coach for Scholastic Bowl at Oswego East. Come join us! We travel around Illinois and compete against other teams in trivia-style competition. We went to Nationals in Atlanta in 2022! I have also served on the school improvement team, advised various student clubs, served as the social chair for the Social Studies Department, presented workshops in the district, worked as a HOWL advisor, and more.
Outside of school, I like to spend time with my beautiful wife and two great kids. My hobbies include hiking, playing and designing board games, writing, playing video games, and watching movies and television shows. I am a huge Boston Red Sox fan, and, in fact, named my son Boston to honor that love. Go Red Sox! I also love everything Nintendo, Marvel, and '66 Batman. I look forward to meeting you!
Also, my daughter wanted a shout out on this page--here you go, Cam!
