My name is Victoria Ooms, and I’m thrilled to be teaching Social Studies here at 21st Century Charter school.I graduated with a double bachelor’s degree from Indiana University Northwest in May.


Welcome to another exciting school year in which I am expecting students to bring a willingness to learn and the stamina to keep trying each and every day. I try and keep an upbeat, enthusiastic classroom environment that really focuses on the engagement of the students.


As your social studies teacher, we will read, write, and think together.There are times when you will enjoy this class and times when you would rather be somewhere else.  Through it all, remember, it is your choice to succeed, but I am here to guide you. My main goal is to help you learn and grow your strengths and overcome your short comings. Remember attitude reflects leadership and with the right attitude you can achieve greatness. Be the leader, be daring, be humble, be open to learn and grow but most of all be great.

I encourage parents and guardians to ask their children about what happens in my classroom.  Please feel free to contact me.  I am readily available to meet with any parents that may have a question or concern.
