This is my 8th year of education and am so excited to be an Owl. OAS has been so welcoming and supportive! I love dogs, crafting, camping, and spending time with family and friends. I’m getting ready to have my first child and am excited to begin this journey.

Jean Sebastian Church

This is my second year teaching at OHS. I have enjoyed my experience here, and both Oscoda and my students are very important to me. I graduated from Oscoda myself, so I am proud to carry on the tradition of education in my hometown..

I am an Oscoda graduate, married, and I have two boys at RES! My family spent about 10 years on the west side of the state before “moving home”to Oscoda. We feel so fortunate to be back to plant our roots! Looking forward to a great future with OAS! Go Owls!
