Mrs. O'Connor's Classroom

Welcome to First Grade

Hello! My name is Christine O'Connor and I am so happy to be the first grade teacher again this year! I live in Bourbonnais with my husband Mike, my 18 year old son Sam, my 17 year old son Max, and my Old English Sheepdog named Murphy.

This is my 17th year working with first graders, and I have loved each and every minute of it! I can't wait to spend the year with my new class of kids!





Welcome to first grade!


The first graders look forward to working with their Senior buddies for Math centers on Tuesday afternoons.
