Deana O'Rear


I have been teaching secondary science for 28 years, with the last 17 years at Treetops.  I have a B.S. in Biology from Furman University (Go Paladins!) and a Master of Arts in Science Education (Biology) from Western Governors University.  All 3 of my boys graduated from Treetops.  Two of my boys are sophomores at Tarleton State University studying Nursing and Computer Science & Math.  My youngest is a freshman at Texas State Technical College in Waco studying Diesel Equipment Technology.  In addition to teaching high school science, I will also be the Student Council Advisor this year.  One of my favorite things to do is to travel the world!  Currently I have visited 14 countries (United States, Mexico, Canada, Jamaica, Bahamas, Italy, Vatican, Greece, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Czechia, Slovakia).  I really enjoy travelling with students at Treetops.  I have coordinated trips to Greece, Germany, Switzerland, & Austria, and Italy, and I am in the beginning stages of planning an international trip for students in March '25.
