Hello, My name is Linda Tamiya, and I am a Special Education Teacher at Lake Olympia Middle School. I teach 7th Grade Resource ELA / Co-Teach 7th Grade ELA with Ms. Otalor. I also Co - Head the Special Education Department with Mr. Vigil. My Teaching Career began in the Economic Capital of Cameroon [Cameroon is located in the Central part of Africa],where I taught English as a Second Language to French Speaking Students in a Technical High School for 5 years. This is my 6th year in Lake Olympia Middle school, working with students blessed differently, and it has been an awesome experience working with these students.
I live at Missouri City with my husband of 18 years and our four 4 kids whose ages are 11 , 13, 16, and 17 years old.
As an Educator, my aim is to help/mentor these students to discover the potentials in them despite their disabilities. I believe every student is smart, talented and intelligent in their own way, and should not be made to think otherwise. I do all it takes as their teacher to help them become who they truly are and can be. Students should not be defined by their disabilities.
I look forward to having a great year with all my 7th Graders. This is a very different kind of year we all wished was just a dream, but we together, will go through this, stronger and successful.
