Lourdes Checa is the Spanish II and III teacher as well as the English Language Development (ELD) teacher. This year is Mrs. Checa’s tenth year of teaching, starting in 2007. Since 2009 Checa has worked with Oak Hills High School, which is when the school opened. She chose this job because ever since she was a teenage student, she loved the feeling she received when helping others. 

“I enjoy working for a good cause. The outcome is very rewarding. Teaching makes me happy, my students make me smile everyday.”

Some things that Mrs. Checa enjoys collecting is coins and currency as well as Fast and The Furious collectible cars. Watching her kids play soccer and traveling with her family is something that Checa really loves to do whenever she gets the chance. She has had a favorite book since high school, “Como agua para chocolate”, which translates to Like Water for Chocolate. Books in Spanish are Checa’s favorite to read. Mrs. Checa describes herself as a respectful, caring, and encouraging person. Her hard work and dedication to helping others reach their goals is a great appreciation here at OHHS, without her most of our work done in the Spanish/Foreign Language Department of our school would not be possible.
