About Mrs. O'Malley...
Position: 1st Grade
Welcome to first grade! I am so proud to be part of such an amazing school community! I am thrilled to be your child's teacher, and I look forward to getting to know all of you and your precious children. It will be a great year full of tremendous growth and learning. Thank you for entrusting me with your child!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State with a degree in Elementary Education. I have been teaching in the district since 2015. I have taught Kindergarten-4th grade.
My Educational Philosophy
My teaching philosophy is centered around Maslow's hierarchy of needs. I feel that students must feel safe and cared for before they are ready to learn. I focus on creating a collaborative classroom community where students feel safe and able to take risks. I love teaching and it is my goal for all of my students to enjoy coming to school.
