About Lisa O'Connell
After earning my Masters degree in education, then student teaching right here at St.Linus, I began teaching full-time in 2007. I spent several years teaching first grade, and currently am enjoying life as a third grade teacher. In my free time, I love working outside in my garden, traveling with my family and friends to new places, and discovering good books to read. I believe that the best gift we can give our children is a steady stream of challenges that build their self-confidence and help them succeed the rest of their lives.
