All About Me
(Mrs. O in Kindergarten!)
My name is Karen O'Reilly and I was raised in Hillsdale where I still continue to reside with my husband, Tim and family. My background in education goes back to 1962 when Meadowbrook School first opened and I was a student of the first kindergarten class. Until the most recent kindergarten/pre-k addition was completed in 2004, I had been teaching in the same room that was my kindergarten classroom!
I attended Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA where I majored in Education and Spanish. After having taught Spanish at the high school level, I became a stay-at-home mom and raised my three children until my youngest child was in a full-day school program. I just couldn't stay away from education and realized that my greatest love was working with young children, so I worked toward my certification at the elementary level. I was ever so fortunate to be hired to teach in the same district and school that I loved as a child. It is my goal this year that your children and my students will love Meadowbrook School as much as I did as a child, and still do to this very day!
