B.S. Education, Arkansas State University

Graduated Magma cum laude in Jonesboro, Arkansas.


I am certified to teach grades 7-12 Biology, 7-12 Science and K-6.


I currently have 21 years experience teaching science; 14 of which have been in Desoto county schools and 7 in Arkansas. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching Middle school science for 14 years. However, after 14 years decided it was time for me to graduate to high school where I have taught science skills (a prep course for biology), Human anatomy and physiology, Marine biology, Enviormental science and Biology.


Hello, my name is Andra Orpet.  I was born, raised and lived most of my adult life in Northeast Arkansas with my mom, dad and four sisters. (NO BROTHERS....MY POOR DAD!)  I attended and graduated from Wynne High School and later returned to teach six years in the Wynne Public School district. 

My husband and I have resided in desoto county where I have taught in the district for 14 years. We have two beautiful daughters and six grandchildren.  We also have two chihuahuas (our babies), a cat, and a 15 year old IGUANA named Rita. : )  Yes, I am an animal lover!

Teaching is NOT my is my love and my PASSION.
