Mrs. O'Brien

Hi My name is Karla O'Brien.  I am so excited to be a Norterra Canyon Pirate!  This is my fourth year at Norterra Canyon and my 18th year teaching.  I am originally from Hartford, Wisconsin and I am still a Wisconsin girl at heart. I received my Bachelors Degree from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse and my Masters in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University.   I am looking forward to starting another year in 2nd grade! 

A little background about my life.  My husband and I have been married almost 10 years we were married on St. Patrick's Day.  We have two daughters, Kallie and Riley.  We spent our summer traveling to Wisconsin and my husband and I got away by ourselves to Boston! When I am not teaching I am spending time with the family, we are very active we love to hike, play tennis, and going on day trips around Arizona. 

I am so excited to be a Pirate!!! I look forward to having a great year with you.
