Greetings, students, parents, and other visiting guests!
My name is Elizabeth Oing, affectionately known by my students as "Ms. OG" or "Ms. OG Swag" (I speak their lingo ;) ) I have been teaching at Independence since November 2004; I started in English Language Development, then moved to English with a special focus in Reading. I have taught all levels except seniors and AP.
I am a California native; I was born in San Diego and grew up in San Jose. My big interests (aside from literature) are technology and theater. I was a theater major in San Francisco, and my teaching credential is English with a Drama emphasis (I light up around Shakespeare *wink*). Before I got into teaching, I was an administrative/executive assistant, and a web site designer for SUN Microsystems. I speak geek fluently, and often use that and my knowledge of popular culture to grab my students' interest. I have trained in online & blended learning and using technology to supplement and not distract from education (from Leading Edge Certification).
