Teacher Spotlight: Mr. Oglesby

It not just a career, it’s a passion for physics teacher Mr. Oglesby.

When asking Oglesby why he wanted to be a teacher he joked, “ I wanted a fat salary.”

The real reason Oglesby went into teaching is because he wanted to impact the lives of young students. He wanted to help with their growth in education and help the youth of today.

He said teaching was “as much fun as a dentist cleaning teeth.”

 Oglesby said that he always wanted to do a career that involved science. He likes physics because it is pure science. He is really looking forward to Christmas break, spring break, and summer vacation.

Asked if he would miss his students over the break, he said, “The ones that bring me snacks and gifts, yes.”

In his free time he likes to take his 5-year-old son to the park.

Asked if he has any hobbies, Oglesby said, “I used to have a lot of hobbies, but I outgrew all my cool hobbies.”
