Mrs. Jennifer Barbara Oluwafemi
My name is Mrs.Oluwafemi, and I am one of the 7th grade ELA teachers here at Lake Olympia Middle School. I am also the 7th grade ELA team lead. I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from the University of Houston. I began my teaching career in the Houston Independent School District teaching High School Spanish. I obtained my master's degree in Education from LeTourneau University. The foundation of my teaching profession is based on my passion to help students better understand the world they live in by becoming critical thinkers and life-long learners. I am a certified 4-8 generalist, which means I am certified to teach English, Math, Social Studies and Science. I am very serious about educating children and I push my students to give me no less than their very best. I am also a fitness instructor, and I have been in the fitness industry for over 20 years. I also own a fitness organization called Elevated Fitness & Dance. I was born in the United States, but I am of Nigerian heritage and I was raised in Nigeria for a couple of years. One of the greatest joys of my life is being a mother and a wife. One of my daughters graduated from Clements High School, and is currently in college. I am married to a wonderful man named, Praise Oluwafemi, who is a pastor, author, health and nutrition coach and speaker and we have 4 children. I delight in helping children reach their fullest potential and I look forward to helping your child reach his or her fullest potential.
