I have been with Tulsa Public School for 25 years. I started my career as a 4th grade teacher at Cooper Elementary where I stayed for 14 years. I transfered to Emerson Elementary where I stayed for two years before becoming the assistant principal at Disney Elementary in 2010. After two years as assistant principal at Disney, I stepped into the role of principal where I currently work with wonderful staff and awesome families. I truly enjoy my job as the principal at Disney Elementary. It is such a pleasure to watch our students grow and learn at the “Wonderful World of Disney.”
Teresa Peña has acquired over thirty years of educational experience, serving students and teachers as academic coordinator, strategic school design specialist, and assistant principal in both middle and elementary schools. Perhaps most importantly, her focus with serving teachers comes from her personal experience of over 17 years as a teacher in the public school system. Peña's patient and calm approach as an administrator is balanced with a passion for community service serving as a docent for Gilcrease Museum, delivering meals with Meals on Wheels while traveling with her friends all over the world. Teresa is also proud to serve families as an English teacher to immigrants and refugees at Tulsa YWCA.
