Penny O'Rear

4th Grade Teacher

Penny O'Rear Bio

My husband and I moved to Texas from California in July 2018. We are loving our new home and state! I graduated California Baptist University with my Bachelors in Liberal Arts and a minor in music and Brandman University with a Master’s Degree in education. I began my teaching in the field of special education and gained wonderful experience in that position. In my 5th year teaching, I’ve transitioned to teach 4th grade general education and have also had a wonderful time. In our spare time, my husband and I love to listen to live music and find new places to have coffee or great food. While it was difficult to leave family and friends in California, Texas has welcomed us so greatly, and we are loving the chance to make new memories here. Cheers y’all!
