Ms. Otero

My name is Christina Otero, and I'm very excited to be your teacher for English I/honors here at West Port High School for the 2020 - 2021 school year!  Also very exciting this year - I was named one of Marion County's Golden Apple Teachers.  I hold my BA in both English and Psychology from the State University of New York and my MS in Secondary Education also from SUNY.  I taught for 2 years at an all-boys charter school in New York prior to moving to Florida, and this will be my 10th year teaching English I at WPHS.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my children, especially at our favorite place, Disney World.  My daughter loves animals, so we also spend many weekends at the zoo or aquarium.
