Teaching Those Who Teach

“It’s always about the kids and it’s always been about the kids.”

That philosophy is the inspiration for Nick Guido ’09, who spent fall term student-teaching social science and history at Oswego High School. “That was the philosophy of my speech teacher in high school and it inspires me now,” says Guido. “I want to make every effort to make my passion for history come alive for my students, so they can experience what I feel. Since high school I could picture myself in front of my students.”
