Meet Mrs. O

    This is my eighteenth year teaching and I still love teaching just as much today as I did when I started.    Before coming to Gordon Creek, I was at Wood Road and taught fifth and first grade.  Before coming to Ballston Spa School District, I taught sixth grade in North Colonie for eight years, and before that I taught fourth grade in Concord, Massachusetts.  As a child, I grew up in Rotterdam, New York and then went to Siena College.  After graduating, I moved to Boston to get my Master's Degree and began teaching there. 
    My family and I live in Ballston Spa.  My husband, Corey and I have two children; Jayden and Austin.  They both are in Ballston Spa Schools.  Jayden is in seventh grade this year at the Middle School,  and Austin is in sixth grade. Kyrie and Melo, our furry brothers are also a part of our family!   All of us (including Kyrie and Melo!) are huge Siena Basketball fans and attend home games often.  
    You will soon find out that I am an active person.  When I'm not cheering on the Siena Saints or the New York Yankees, you'll  find me playing with my boys, out for a run, or shopping at some of my favorite stores!  My family and I spend a lot of time in the summer on my parent's boat on Saratoga Lake and on the beach in Cape Cod.  Some of my other favorite things are coffee, chocolate and peanut butter flavored candy, reading, and of course working with children.
