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.
