Hello! I’m Mrs. Orta. I am a World History teacher at Grissom High School. I love cultural and historical studies. My husband works for the United States Army and I have two rambunctious, amazing little boys. I lived in Texas for 8 years before my Army husband was transferred to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Next was Indianapolis, Indiana and then in 2018, we landed in Honolulu, Hawaii. Hunstville, Alabama is our last stop!

In my class, you will learn the importance geography plays in our lives and how important understanding where you come from informs and impacts where you are going. Diversity will be embraced and celebrated. Welcome to an interactive class!
