Ms. Keegan O'Brien
It is with much delight that I introduce myself as the second grade teacher for the 2022-2023 school year here at West Elementary School. I bring to the classroom more than 20 years of teaching experience with a range of different grade levels, including Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, Elementary Music, and Middle School Science.
I am a native of Colorado Springs, as well as a proud Colorado Springs School District 11 alumnus. I went to Henry Elementary, Irving Junior High, and Mitchell High School. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a minor in Music at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. Two weeks after completing my undergraduate degree, I was back in Colorado Springs at Colorado College earning my Masters of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education.
Besides teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and pets. I have two wonderful children, my daughter, Sophia, and my son, Caden. We have a dog, Murphy, two crazy cats, Talula and Paisley, and two parakeets, Winnie and Millie. I love being with my kids, being outside, singing, dancing, reading, gardening, watching soccer, hockey, and basketball, and laughing whenever possible. I am also a coffee fanatic.
