About Ms. O'Brien

Hello! I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher this year on their third grade journey. 

I graduated from SUNY Cortland with a degree in Childhood Education and a minor in Professional Writing. I also have a Masters degree in Special Education from CUNY Queens College. I am New York State licensed in general education and special education. 

Since graduating college, I worked as a teaching assistant, and as an ABA therapist. Teaching students with severe and multiple disabilities was pivotal in shaping the teacher I am today. 

Collaborating with families and emphasizing positive behaviors are an integral part of my teaching philosophy.  Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns, as I check my email frequently and will respond in a timely matter. 

We are going to have a fantastic year in 3rd grade! Thank you for your continued support in having a successful school year!
