Degrees and Certifications:
My husband Shaun and I live in Livonia with our son Logan and our daughter Sloan. Logan will be a second grader at Hoover Elementary this year, and Sloan is in her last year of preschool. We enjoy traveling, being outside, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. We are also avid Detroit fans, we frequent Tiger's and Wings games! For the past fourteen years I have had the pleasure of teaching at Holmes Middle School. I taught study skills eleven of those years, co-taught Math for eight years, and have co-taught almost every subject that Holmes offers. I am excited to be your 7th grade Math teacher this year.
I received my Bachelor's Degree from Central Michigan University, Go Chips!. I am certified in Elementary Education, Special Education, Mathematics and Language Arts. I student taught in both Plymouth and Ghana, West Africa! I completed my Master's Degree at Madonna University for Educational Leadership.
Something about me that often surprises people is that I am in the Army Reserves. I joined after my freshmen year in college as a combat medic. In 2007 I was deployed to Iraq, with a surgical team, and spent a year overseas. In 2009, I received my commission, and am now CPT O'Connor. I have served for 17 years and plan to retire after completing 20 years of service.
