Kellie O'Brien, 5th Grade ELA and Social Studies Teacher
My name is Ms. Kellie O'Brien and I am looking forward to my 30th year of teaching and my 11th year of teaching the fifth grade! I live in Covington with my daughter Kaycee, our dogs Stella and Mabel, and on weekends our class pet Hamilton (Guinea pig). I graduated from Southeastern University with a bachelor's degree in both regular and special education. I'm also certified in The Montessori method of teaching. In addition to my education degrees, I hold a certification in American Sign Language. I'm looking forward to another wonderful school year! I feel it's very important, to provide a positive learning environment where my students are respected and feel free to foster their natural love of learning.
The mission for my fifth grade class is for every student to develop the values, knowledge and skills needed to achieve their fullest potential. I want to challenge all students to become capable, confident, life-long learners and to respect and appreciate the differences among others.
