Ms. Oriana Flores
Hello, my name is Ms. Flores, I am a 3rd-grade teacher on the English side at Oakley Elementary. I am excited to teach and learn from my students this academic school year. This is my first year of teaching, however, I have worked with children for five years. After working with children for most of my life, I decided to pursue a career in teaching. I attended Texas Tech University where I received my teaching degree in 2018. I have enjoyed working with students by encouraging them to have a growth mindset through lessons that involve multiple levels of thinking. Needless to say, I am anxious to meet my first set of students so that I can provide an impactful learning experience. My dream to become a teacher came true because of my strong, loving and supportive family. I am currently engaged to my soon to be husband. He is a Teacher and Varsity football coach at Crosby High school. I personally think it is neat to share the same career and passion because we learn from each other. Working hard and setting goals are two things I find important in life, "You never stop learning because life never stops teaching". I want to instill that nothing is impossible if we work for it. I strongly believe each student is equally capable of achieving greatness.
