Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. My name is Elaine O'Connor and this is my 6th year teaching at W.M. Irvin. I excited to be back teaching in 1st grade. I taught 1st before moving to Kindergarten to teach Dual Language. I will be teaching the Dual language program this year along with my counterpart Sen. Vazquez. This is an amazing program and oppurtunity for our students to learn a second language. I wish my children had the oppurtunity when they were at Irvin. I have three children, two boys and a girl and they are all at Concord high school this year. Where did those years go. I was born and raised in Ireland, and Gaeilge was my first language and English my second. I lived in Pennsylvania for seven years and now happy to call Concord, NC my home. During my free time, I love spending time with family, reading, hiking and need to get back to running.
I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a BA in Elementary Education.
