Teacher Spotlight: Katie Tosh

Katie Tosh, current English teacher and National Honors Society sponsor at Hinsdale Central and former English teacher and Activities Director at Hinsdale South, is making great strides in the Chicago athletic community. Chicago Athlete Magazine just named Ms. Tosh one of two Clif Bar Athletes of the Year 2019 and featured her in an interview after she was May’s Athlete of the Month.

In addition to competing in 11 marathons, Ms. Tosh has qualified for this year’s Boston Marathon in September. The students and staff of District 86 look forward to sending Ms. Tosh off in style as well as cheering her on from the midwest on Patriot’s Day 2020! 

District 86 is so fortunate to have such a talented and determined teacher. Ms. Tosh draws many parallels between running and teaching. In sharing her passion for her sport, Ms. Tosh says, “I hope to inspire my students, not necessarily to take up running, but rather to find a passion that fulfills them.” Her professionalism and leadership are assets to both students and staff alike.
