Teacher Biography 

Mrs. O'Brien



 My name is Susan D. O'Brien and I have happily been teaching your third graders here at St. Athanasius School for over 30 years. I teach Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Math and Handwriting. I also teach to the second grade spelling. Before moving to the Philadelphia area, I taught first grade in MIddletown, Connecticut. My B.A is in Elementary Education and my M. S. is in Special Education.

I was born in England and grew up in Rye, New York, a suburb of NYC.  I am married to Ronald O'Brien and have a tuxedo cat named Nehemiah. When I have spare time, I love to be with my family and friends,  travel, learn history, read, garden and watch the birds at my bird feeders. Nehemiah is fond of the birds too!

I want the children in my class to love God, respect others, be responsible and to always be kind. I want them to learn as much as they can with the goal of becoming independent learners. I try to make learning fun and to have a classroom full of happy, learning children.

If you need to email me, please do so through the messaging on Option C. I check this daily.

 It's almost that time  Back to school will be here soon. Please remember to finish up your summer reading and projects.  Also remember that all addition and subtraction facts are to me memorized. The reading assignments will be the first two reading grades and the first math tests will be speed tests on addition and subtraction facts.

 Have a great rest of the vacation. I can't wait to see all of you soon!
