Mrs. Samantha Oliva
My name is Samantha Oliva and I am a teacher here at Brandon High School. I teach Spanish, levels 1 & 2. I am a native of the Brandon/Reservoir area where I graduated from Northwest Rankin High School in 2007. From there I moved on to Holmes Community College and then to Mississippi College of Clinton where I received my Bachelors of Arts in Spanish and then later my teacher certification. I am currently pursuing my masters in education at Mississippi College.
I am married to a wonderful man and I have 2 girls. My oldest is 10 and my youngest is 2.
The Spanish language is my true passion. I use it on a daily basis, I speak Spanish at home with my family. I do not just teach it. My goal is to spread my knowledge and appreciation of the language and its culture. I am excited to have all these students and I know we are going to have a great year!
