About Me Week 1 July 31 – August 4, 2017

My name is Mrs. Osakwe. I have 21 years experience in teaching, leadership, and administration in education. I also have many years of experience co-pastoring Pentecostal Christian churches with my husband in Nigeria and the United States. Together we work with missionaries all over the world. I have five children (two girls and three boys) who are all in college pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees.

I love working with children, teaching them how to expand their minds by reading and learning,  and how to communicate by writing because their voice is important and should be heard. I want all my students to know that they can and will become valuable members of their community, the society, and their generation.

I will be co-teaching your  Reading and Language & Literature- Writing courses.
Language and literature-writing with Mrs. Stewart; and reading with Mrs. Gallien. Details of all your assignments can be found on their blogs. Just click on the link below, next to their names:
