Welcome to 6th grade Science!

Ms. O'Brien

I'm so excited and grateful to begin my 22nd year of teaching and my 14th year here at Rocky Heights! I taught 2nd and 4th grade for five years in New York before moving to Colorado to teach 5th grade at Buffalo Ridge Elementary. I also taught 4th grade in Parker before making the move to middle school. It was the best decision I could've made. When I came to Rocky Heights I realized I had found my niche! I love working with kids, but sixth graders are by far my favorite age to teach. My passion is helping students explore and ask questions about the world around them. I've been fortunate to do that outside the school setting too as a travel leader. I've taken middle and high school students to Europe, South Africa and South America over the years and had unforgettable adventures!   

I also feel incredibly blessed to have a one year old daughter who my husband and I constantly dote over. I don't think I could've asked for a better time in my life to go into quarantine - our baby has kept us smiling and sane in these crazy times! When we're not in quarantine, I enjoy getting together with family, traveling, hiking, reading and going to concerts.

Despite these unpredictable times, I feel energized and lucky to be able to work with your kids in science this year! Science ROCKS!
