Oak Cliff Secondary


Welcome to Mrs. Andrews' (Coach Andrews') webpage!
I am serving in my 5th year at Life School Oak Cliff. I teach Health Science Technology, Medical Terminology, Anatomy & Physiology, and Sports Med I, II, and III. I also coach softball and am the Head Athletic Trainer for Lion athletics. 
I grew up in south Dallas area, attended Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas earning a BBS in Athletic Training with a minor in Biology. Following life in west Texas, I moved to Maryville, Missouri to be an athletic trainer for the Bearcats of Northwest Missouri State University earning a Master's of Education degree as well as completing necessary coursework to become a certified teacher. I enjoy both aspects of teaching and being an athletic trainer and hope that my students come to know my passion as they pass through my classroom.
Please subscribe to the sections of this page that are applicable to you as a student or parent. I will post assignments and class notes to this site often along with resources to go along with our class content. Feel free to email me from the link on the right side of the page and I will respond in a timely manner.

Looking forward to a great year!
