Jeannine Ortega


Rollins College - Masters in Liberal Studies

Rollins College - Bachelors in Music

University of Central Florida - Bachelors in English Literature


I have lived in the Central Florida area for about 27 years. I began my academic path at UCF and completely a Bachelors in English Literature. Later, I received my degree at Rollins College in music. A Masters in Liberal Studies seemed to be the perfect combination of the fields I am passionate about. I feel following an interdisciplinary path opens up all sorts of possibilities when thinking about culture, history, and the future.

My hobbies include, music lessons, listening to TED talks, NPR, movie watching, swimming, and watching youtubers. I also enjoy traveling and visiting new places.

Things you need to know about me as a professor:

I am always willing to meet with any student on campus in person if you need help, one-on-one assistance, or consulting on your course work.
I have an interest in making sure there is open communication in class and am always open to providing clarity.
I am available to help everyone succeed in class, but my main expectation is that students engage in the courses they have chosen and take advantage of the resources offered.
