Ms. Kaitlyn O'Brien

Biography:

Hello, Sharks! I'm Ms. O'Brien, and this will be my 3rd year teaching 5th grade Science at Sand Ridge. I grew up nearby on Camp Lejeune since my dad was in the Marine Corps. After high school I studied at NC State. While I was studying, I went to South Korea for a semester. Living in South Korea was so much fun that I moved back there after college and spent two and half years teaching English, which encouraged me to go back to school and become a teacher in the US.

Experience:

Following my teaching abroad, I was an English Learner (EL) tutor for Onslow County Schools. In 2019 I received my Masters of Arts in Teaching from East Carolina University with K-6 licensure. In addition to teaching at Sand Ridge, I also tutor Chinese students online.
