Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Evelyn Tuma


I am Ms. Evelyn Tuma and I teach 7th Grade ELAR.  This is my first year at Red Oak Middle School and I am very excited and happy to be here.  I previously taught for 25  years in DeSoto.  So I am fresh, but experienced at the same time.  I have always been an ELAR teacher and have taught both 7th and 8th grade.  

My Educational Background:

DeSoto High School - High School Diploma

Cedar Valley Community College - Associates Degree in Arts and Sciences

University of Texas at Arlington - Bachelor's Degree in English/Education

I also have my ESL and GT certifications

My teaching philosophy is that all students have the ability to improve.  My favorite saying is "We are not there...yet!"

For those students who need a little (or a lot) of help, I have tutoring until 4:30pm every Tuesday.
