Friends say I was meant to be a teacher. I have been teaching since 1989 and can honestly say my students still grab my heart! Creating new lessons for my students is my passion. Mrs.O's Rockin Resources was created through a promise to my students to always find ways to motivate them to learn! I know I've been successful when they ask to do it again!
I believe in teaching balanced literacy as well as meeting the needs of each individual student. I make my lessons creative and motivational so that my students want to walk in my door each morning!

I stay active by being a mom of 48 amazing children. 46 of them live with me under my school roof and two of them actually live with me at home. With my daughter being a senior in high school and traveling the US with an elite competition co-ed cheer team and my son busy with sports in middle school, I never slow down! I can't forget my husband who often says, "It is time to turn off that mind!"
