Hello! I'm Claira Oberrender, and I teach High School English.

Texas School for the Deaf has been my second home since second grade, and I graduated here as the class valedictorian. I attended Gallaudet University and majored in English. After college, I came home and rejoined the TSD family. 

Being a typical English teacher, I enjoy reading, especially young adult literature (nobody is ever too old for young adult novels). My all-time favorite book series is Harry Potter, and I can't stay away from any discussions related to Harry Potter. I also enjoy the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan and the Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater. (Can you tell how much I love books about fantasy and adventures?)

If you wish to contact me, you can email me at claira.oberrender@tsd.state.tx.us

Cheers to a great school year!
