Mr. Jared Ploger

Greetings BHS!!  I am proud to be starting my fifteenth year in the District.  I am teaching American Studies and Social Justice this year.  I coach the JV Scholastic Bowl team here at BHS as well! 

I have obtained a B.A. from Northern Illinois University in History and an M.A. from Olivet Nazarene in Reading Specialist.  I am a former elected official as I served on the Oswego 308 School Board from 2015-2019.  I reside in Aurora and have two boys 20 and 13. My youngest son is fluent in Spanish and English.  I owe much of that to my wife who is a Spanish Teacher in Indian Prairie 204. I am also a proud Grandparent as you can see in this picture, we are White Sox fans!
