Ms. Cheryl D. Orr

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Nimitz Middle School. Go Seahawks! We lead with honor, courage and commitment!


This is my fifth year teaching at Nimitz as one of the ALE Special Education teachers. I graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word. I started teaching in 1990 in North East ISD. I am married and have 2 adult children and 2 grandsons. I enjoy hanging out with my grandsons. I also like to read. 

I will support your child in Reading, English, Social Studies and Life Skills. IEP goals and objectives will be addressed daily. I strive to have a positive learning envirnoment for your child. I also strive to promote independence in my students. 

I look forward to teaching your student this year.
