Ms. Kerry C. Nguyen

Science Teacher

Robotics FTC Coach

This is my first year at OHS. Prior to this, I was at Central HS in Burlington, and at Metea Valley HS in Aurora. Education is a second career for me. I recieved my Bachelors of Science with a focus in Molecular Biology at Loyola University Chicago and a Masters in Teaching at Concordia University Chicago. Prior to teaching, I was in the pharmaceutical and health care industry for 8 years between working for Walgreen's and United Health Care. I keep myself up to date with current practices in drug, health, patient care, and other scientific discoveries. With contacts still in the industry, I am happy to share my experiences with students who are interested in that field. My teaching experiences range from high school to collegiate level. Subjects taught in previous years include: Honors Biology/Biology, Horticulture, Intro to Physical Science, Astronomy, Environmental Science, AP Environmental Science, and ran a Cell Biology Lab at St. Francis University in Joilet. This year at OHS, in addition to teaching Biology and Med Topics, I coach Robotics FTC. I'm happy to promote all things STEM.
