Mrs. Orobia, the Teacher from Far Away

She teaches us math, we teach her culture.
Alix Bennett
Mrs. Orobia’s glowing!

We’ve all been curious about Mrs. Orobia, haven’t we? A new teacher from another country, how exciting!

I asked Mrs. Orobia what she thought was the best part about traveling from the Philippines to the United States, and she said the culture. Her idea of the United States was based on big cities, so  Palestine was a pleasant surprise. It hasn’t always been easy. When she first landed, one of the airport staff yelled at her that she wasn’t in her country, so act American!

Her one piece of advice for students is this:

“Always show up, try your best, and trust the process.”

-Mrs. C. Orobia

About the Contributor
Alix Bennett, Author
Hi! My name's Alix Bennett, and I like frogs (hence the frog hat🐸). I am currently a high school student here at Palestine High School as well as a dual credit student at LTC, and a summer volunteer at George Rogers Clark National Historic Park. I want to be an ecologist, as well as a writer and artist on the side. My favorite artist is Pidgin Dolls, and my favorite musicians are Penelope Scott, cavetown, and Skydxddy. I'm a Neopagan, which means my religion is based on natural cycles and the spirits thereof. My pronouns are She/Her. I'm a huge Pokemon and DnD fan, and I love learning about all kinds of things, such as frogs, insects, mushrooms, frogs, plants, geology, frogs, space, history, frogs, and other subjects. And also frogs. I like frogs. I want to be needlessly kind. If people can needlessly hate strangers, I can needlessly love strangers.
