Ms. Katie O'Keefe

Hi! I am not an Arizona native but I moved here in 2013 and love the sunshine and desert beauty. I am originally from Michigan which has a very different climate, brrrrrrrr. I love my Michigan sports and especially my Detroit Lions! I have two daughters age 17 and 15 years old and two dogs. I am a proud Army Veteran who served four years of active duty. I love doing all types of art and especially learning new mixed mediums. I am currently loving Alcohol Ink and make all types of jewelry, etc. My love of art and working with children led me to become an Elementary School Art Teacher. This school year 2019 - 2020 is my first year teaching and I love it here at Esperanza Elementary!
