My name is Beth Oualline (pronounced wall-EEN), and I am SO EXCITED to be a Bonita Bearcat! I was born and raised in South Texas (Corpus Christi area). I have a B.A. in English from Texas A&M University (Whoop!). I also have an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction and an M.A. in English, both from Sam Houston State University. In the summer of 2019, I moved halfway across the country to CALIFORNIA for my husband’s new job opportunity. This is quite the adventure for a lifelong Texan, but so far, I am loving Southern California!
I met my husband, Jason, while at Texas A&M. We have been married for 20 years and have an 18-year-old daughter named Bayleigh. Jason a professor and the chair of the BFA Game Art major at Laguna College of Art and Design, and Bayleigh is beginning her college career at Grand Canyon University this year.
In eighteen years as an educator, I have taught all levels of English, though most of my teaching experience is with AP English Language (junior) and AP English Literature (senior). I have also taught undergraduate- and graduate-level writing courses at Laguna College of Art and Design for the past five years. At my previous schools, I have had a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities: I coached Varsity Cheerleading, SkillsUSA Quiz Bowl, and Academic UIL Journalism, Ready Writing, and Literary Criticism, and I have served as a Class Council Sponsor. I feel quite privileged to be a part of the Bonita family and am looking forward to an outstanding school year! #AwwYeahBearcats
