Carolina Elizabeth is a new Spanish teacher here at Santa Fe and she is someone that you are going to want to know.

Elizabeth began her teaching career ten years ago in Oklahoma City Public Schools and worked there for three years. She then moved to Deer Creek and worked there for six years. Now, she’s at Santa Fe teaching Spanish.

“I’ve wanted to be a teacher since I was tiny. Having learned English as a second language, I knew that my teachers were super patient with me and I admire that,” Elizabeth said. “They inspire me as an artist as well. They gave me a swift kick when I needed it. It’s because of them that I think I’m able to do art and teach.”

She still talks to her middle school art teacher, Joyce Jackson, and is still inspired by her work and teaching. Elizabeth learned many things from Jackson and continues to see that art is a profession because of that class long ago.

“She made me see that art was a career and a viable one,” Elizabeth said.

Although Elizabeth is a teacher first, she is also an artist. She has her own artwork website and Instagram with over 4,000 followers. Many of her pieces are flowers and nature that can make anyone happy.

Many people see teaching as a career, but Elizabeth sees it as a passion. She loves her students and finds their creativity baffling.

“Students question what we think so much and I just wish they understood that we know how smart they are. I think they’re awesome,” Elizabeth said.

While she is brand new to this school, many teachers and students have welcomed her with open arms. The Spanish staff all agree that she belongs here at Santa Fe.

“She is very personable and a great co-worker. She knows her teaching subject well,” AP Spanish teacher Paige Garrett said. “She really fits in here.”
