Mr. Jesse Ortiz
After graduating from West Aurora in 2010, I began my college career at Benedictine University in Lisle, IL. After 2 years, I accepted a full athletic scholarship to play Division I soccer at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, IN. This is where I graduated and received my Bachelors in Kinesiology and Teaching Education.
I completed my student teaching at Oswego High School. Shortly after graduating, I began subbing in District 308. My first position in OHS was for the Special Education Department as a TA. It was up until the year of 2019 when I was hired as a full time educator for the Kinetic Wellness Department.
Through my experiences and accomplishments, my goal is to lead by example for my students to be successful at anything they put their mind to.
