Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Karen O'Brien

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education from SUNY Plattsburgh and my Master of Science in Educational Psychology and Statistics from SUNY Albany. I received my National Board Cerfitication in 1999 and renewed it in 2009. In June of 2018, I received my Level One Wilson Reading Certification. I have over 15 years experience in the field of special education and over 13 years experience in a fifth grade Integrated Co-Teach setting. My goal each day as a teacher is to provide a safe, nurturing, and inspiring environment in order to bring out the best in each and every student, allowing their performance in all areas to soar.

Mrs. LeFave and I are excited to work together with our fabulous fifth graders this year. We are looking forward to an enriching year filled with growth and learning.
