“There is only one happiness in this life; to love and be loved.” – Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin
Hello! Welcome to my classroom! My name is Ms. Deawna Williams and I teach 7th-grade homeroom. I also teach Literature, Religion, and Art to all of Middle School at Mary Immaculate. This is my 2nd year teaching at Mary Immaculate, however I have taught middle school for four years. I enjoy teaching Middle School – it’s a crucial time in a young individual’s life. I truly believe that our youth are our future. I am blessed and grateful that I have the opportunity to contribute to their education.
I graduated from CSUN with two Bachelor’s degrees – I double majored in Fine Art and Religious Studies. I am currently attending Mount St. Mary’s University where I am studying for my Master’s Degree in Education and my Single-Subject Teaching Credential in English. I am also an aspiring writer and am currently working on a science fiction novel. I absolutely love books and reading! My own personal library contains over 500 books. My favorite book to teach is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
Before the pandemic, I would travel often. I was originally born in Downers Grove, Illinois, and would visit my family there at least once a year. I would also frequently travel to Hawaii and New York – I even went to school there! My favorite island to visit is Maui. Experiencing new cultures (and foods) is always enlightening and exciting for me! I love learning something new about the world that we live in. I hope to one day visit all seven continents, starting with Africa.
