Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Jennifer Barbara Otalor

Hello!  My name is Jennifer Otalor, and I am one of the 7th grade ELA teachers here at Lake Olympia Middle School.  I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from the University of Houston.  I began my teaching career at the high school level teaching Spanish.  I obtained my master's degree in Education from LeTourneau University and I am currently in the process of completing my master's degree in Psychology in preparation to becoming a school psychologist and licensed therapist.  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 and dance instructor or Fort Bend YMCA and Dynamic Fitness Sugar Land. I also own a fitness organization called Elevated Fitness & Dance which is registered in Fort Bend County.  I was born in the United States, but I am of Nigerian heritage and I was rasied in Nigeria for a couple of years.  One of the greatest joys of my life is being a mother.  My daughter is currently a student at Clements High School and is on the Varsity dance team. I delight in helping children reach their fullest potential and I look forward to working with your child!
