Welcome new teachers

“I think that exploring literature is one of the greatest ways to explore the self and the world around us,” says Ms. Osenbaugh, Honors English I teacher. Osenbaugh became a teacher out of a desire to help students who may be struggling in high school. She enjoys analyzing literature and engaging students in meaningful conversations and in her free time, she enjoys playing video games and Dungeons and Dragons. She finds a quote by Kurt Vonnegut from The Sirens of Titan especially meaningful: “A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.” 

Mrs. Slabek, the new-to-Nazareth Algebra 1 CP and Algebra 2 teacher, knew she wanted to become a teacher because of the amazing teachers she too had in high school. When Mrs. Slabek is not teaching Math, she enjoys watching Netflix and completing crossword puzzles. A motto that she lives by and employs into her daily life is “Choose Happiness.” 

“I was influenced by the desire to give back to the communities that shaped me into who I am today, from St. Leonard School in Berwyn to here at Nazareth Academy,” shares Naz alum and new teacher, Alex Wilkinson. Outside of teaching PE/Health, Team Sports, and Yoga, Wilkinson’s hobbies include playing sports, traveling the world, and watching reality TV shows like “The Bachelor” and “The Challenge.” The motto that Wilkinson lives by is, “what goes around, comes around.”

Ms. Larson teaches World History and US History. She became a teacher in order to fulfill her desire, “To inspire the next generation and help students become lifelong learners.” Outside of inspiring students in her history classroom, she enjoys watching movies, roadtripping, and soccer. An important quote to Ms. Larson is, “Be Yourself, everyone else is already taken.” 

Mrs. DeAngelis teaches Spanish 1, Spanish 3, and Spanish 3 Honors. She shares that she wanted to become a teacher because she enjoys helping students learn something new every day. DeAngelis tries to connect Spanish to other subjects, as she feels “everything in this world is interrelated.” Outside of teaching, Mrs. DeAngelis enjoys anything pertaining to music, including attending concerts, musicals, and operas. Contributing to her love of music, she also has the ability to sing choral and opera, as she was classically trained in college. A quote that she believes is important is from Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes: “Él que lee mucho y anda mucho, ve mucho y sabe mucho.” This translates to “He who reads a lot and walks a lot, sees a lot and knows a lot.”

Art teacher, Mrs. Pack-Scott chose the career path of a teacher to incorporate her passions for art and graphic design and interacting with students into one dream job. Outside of educating students, Mrs. Pack-Scott enjoys cooking and reveling in a good murder mystery. She shared a quote that she often reminds herself of: “Everything is working out just the way it’s supposed to.”
