Ms. Samantha Howard
School District 308 has blessed me with the opportunity to work at Oswego High School. I am part of the Kinetic Wellness department as a physical education and health teacher. I teach multiple classes in our curriculum ranging from grade levels 9-12. I graduated and received my bachelor’s degree in 2018 from Western Michigan Univiersity in Kalamazoo, Michigan and received my masters degree in 2020 from the American College of Education in Teacher Leadership. During my undergraduate years, I also competed at the Division I level in track and field where I specialized in the throwing events (specifically hammer throw and discus). Currently, I coach girl's track and field along with coaching club volleyball. Outside of school, you can find me playing with my dog, boating or doing anything outdoors! In 2021, some of my goals include completing an Olympic Triathlon, a half marathon, visiting a few national parks, and going skydiving. I am very passionate about healthy living and want to continue to motivate and inspire students to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle!
