Hi, I am Mrs. O'Korn. This is my 15th year at Baker Elementary but my 24th year teaching. I have taught first grade, second grade, third grade and two years as a Literacy Specialist. My true passion is in the classroom.
Fourteen years ago, I moved here from Las Vegas, Nevada with my husband and children. I have three beautiful children, Abigail 16 1/2 years old, Grace 15 years old and Luke 11 1/2 years old. This year Luke will be in fifth grade, Grace tenth grade and Abby eleventh. We also have 4 chickens and an an Austrailan Shepard, Zeb. I love to watch with my children play sports, cheer on Pittsburgh sports' teams, hang out with my husband, read, garden, camp and scrapbook. A couple years ago, I started experimenting decorating cakes with fondant. It takes a long time but it is fun. I still have A LOT to learn!
I graduated from Eastern Washington University with a BA in Elementary Education and Reading. I obtained my Masters in Technology in Education from Lesley University.
This year your child will learn the second grade curriculum but also how to be responsible for his/her learning, how to be a problem solver, thinker and thoughtful reader.
My family!We have been married for 19 years!Zeb!
