schools is proud to introduce its new teachers to our community. Look for a
profile on a new instructor here on a regular basis.
I am Vera
Owen and I teach at Highland Middle School.
grew up in Hobbs and graduated from Hobbs High
School. I later graduated from University of the Southwest.
The reason I want to teach is because I
want to assist students with special needs who have difficulty due to a
disability or handicap. It is so rewarding to see the light bulb come on when
they grasp the concept.
My favorite memory from my own days in school is when I achieved one of my goals or did well on an assignment.
In my spare time I like to visit
with my friends, work on my hobbies of making jewelry, tending my yard and
flowers. I also enjoy spending time with my two Brittany dogs.
My favorite book is the Bible. It covers literature, math, history,
science and has inspiration as well as rules to live by. When I have questions,
I can usually find the answers there.
