About Mrs. O'Brien . . .
This my 14th year at Calf Pen Meadow! Time flies when you're doing what you love.
I spent my first twelve years as a third grade teacher and I've just begun my seond year
in as CPM's Literacy Coach. Although I miss having a classroom of my own, I'll have the
luxury of digging in and focusing on the instruction of reading, writing, listening and
speaking. I'll work with teachers and children to strengthen student learning in these
areas. What a privilege!
When I'm not at Calf Pen Meadow, I'm happy spending time at home with my husband,
Dan. Between us, we have three wonderful children. Lauren is a third grade teacher at a
small private school in Waterbury. Dan (the younger one) is a chef and occasionally treats
us to a fancy dinner when he's not busy cooking for paying customers. My boy, Marty, is a
sophomore in college at Southern Connecticut State University where he's (hopefully )
studying hard and (definitely) having fun with his friends. The only member of our
household who still sits on our laps is our cat, Emmie.
In my free time, I love to read (of course!) and knit. I'm also rolling ideas around in my
head for the childrens book I'd love to write ... some day...
Thanks for reading!
