My name is Karen O’Brien. This year I am starting my 15th year teaching, and it feels like I am coming full circle. I started out teaching first grade in a small public school in Brooklyn, NY. After 4 years, I got my Masters Degree in the teaching of Literacy, got married, and relocated.

I landed a great job as a Reading Specialist in a small elementary school in Putnam, NY. I loved my job for 10 years…helping great students learn to be better readers. I loved my kids and reading team, but I started to miss having a class of my own. When my district decided to implement full-day kindergarten, I jumped at the chance!

I’m creating this blog to document my first year in kindergarten, and all the fun, exciting and terrifying moments ahead.

Thanks in advance for reading!!
