Mrs. Lynn R. Odnovyun

I am the ESL teacher at Sam Jamison Middle School.  I have enjoyed teaching for many years. I love traveling and I have lived and taught in four different states.  I have always enjoyed reading and learning.  I have the opportunity to meet and teach many diverse students from all over the world.  I help them to improve their English language skills as well as their overall confidence. I had the honor of being named Pearland ESL District Teacher of the Year in 2018. Then in 2019, I was Sam Jamison's Teacher of the Year.  Last year, in 2020, I was a finalist for a Lifetime Achievement Award in the state of Texas.  I won $1,000 for our school.  Mrs. Bradley suggested we buy ipads for my ESL students with my prize money.  I am very blessed to have received so many honors by doing what I love best, teaching at Sam Jamison Middle School:)

I am always available by email or phone if you have any questions or concerns.  Please do not hesitate to contact me.  Let's have a great school year 2020 - 2021.



I have created a TEAMS channel for ESL 5th grade students and one TEAMS channel for ESL 6th grade students.  You can message me with questions or if you need help with an assignment I will be happy to help.
