New Teachers at Oyler

By Frank Lay and Jaldorra Cooper

Four new faculty members have been added to the high school. Two transferred to Oyler, and two moved from other positions at Oyler. The new staff are David Theurer and Karen Kuhn. The new high school faculty from Oyler are Debbie Williams, and Kayla Brunswick.

Mr. Theurer is the new math teacher who has taken over for Ms. Lea. Before coming to Oyler, he taught at Dohn Community school, teaching math from ninth to twelfth grade. He has been teaching for about fourteen years now, two years at Colerain, and eleven years at Dohn Community School. Mr. Theurer has said he enjoys being here so far, that the students and staff are welcoming and that he hopes to stay until the end of his career. His goals for his class are to improve the performance of each of his students on the end-of -course tests and to help them learn and like math.

The second floor at Oyler has new teachers, too. One of the new teachers on the second floor is Alexis Swisher, who teaches 5th grade math and science. This is her first year in Cincinnati Public Schools and also her first year teaching 5th grade. Ms. Swisher said, “I grew up in Cincinnati, so I wanted to come back to Cincinnati. I just knew I wanted to be in the Cincinnati Public School District, and I liked the community feel here because it’s such a small school and everyone knows everyone.” Some of Ms. Swisher’s goals are to help students follow instructions but also help them move themselves academically higher and achieve their own individual goals. She wants to work on everything, not just math and science.
