Meet Tiffanye Oliver
I am a wife, sister, daughter, friend and nature lover. I received two
degrees from the University of North Texas. I was born and raised in
Dallas, TX. I currently live in Red Oak, TX. My parents are from a small
town in Arkansas, so I love small towns.
When did you know you wanted to be an educator?
My father is a retired educator, and he is my role model. I have
always worked in customer service, so I enjoy helping people. However,
I did not know I would become an educator until I went to college.
How many years have you been in education?
This was my 21st year in education. I have served as a classroom
teacher, adjunct instructor, instructional coach, educational
consultant, assistant principal, principal, coordinator, and director.
Throughout your years in education, what are the biggest changes
(positive & negative) you have seen?
The biggest changes are the types of technology we use, how we
communicate with colleagues and families, student expectations, and
preparing students for the unknown.
What does your vision board include?
My vision board looks like continued academic, family and personal
growth. I would like to write a book, receive a doctorate, become a
superintendent, build capacity in others, travel, and retire.
Why is Journey Through Education a product and company you support?
It is important to take the time to reflect and invest in yourself as
a person. Educators are givers who constantly give to others without
refueling themselves which leads to burnout.

last a lifetime or generations to come
