Chiara Ojeda

Professor of English
Interim Dean, Communications

Hi. I'm Chiara, a superteacher on a mission...

From the moment I picked up J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, I began a journey as a lifelong learner whose passion for language, communication, and self-expression has spanned two languages, cultures, and perspectives. I spent my early days in Puerto Rico and am a proud member of both my Puertorican culture and American culture. As a now Central Florida native, I've lived, studied, and taught in the state for 26 years. I am blessed to have a loving family, wonderfully inspirational friends, a tender feline friend, and supportive partner.

My hobbies include devouring all genres of science fiction (with a bit of a dabble into horror), cooking, baking, designing, and blogging.
