Ms. Julia Hainer has taught at Oyster-Adams since 2010 and is the English TAG Teacher at the primary campus. She is a William Waters Scholarship for Urban Education recipient and has been ranked as a highly effective teacher by DC Public Schools. Ms. Hainer loves being able to speak Spanish and English with the staff and the families of OA, and loves that bilingual education celebrates two languages and two cultures. She believes this gives our Spanish speaking students a strong sense of self and our English speaking students a broader perspective through bilingualism. Her favorite pastimes are riding her bike, cooking vegetarian food, and hiking.
