Ms. Elaine O'Connor

My name is Elaine O'Connor and this is my 7th year teaching at W.M. Irvin. I taught 1st for a few years before moving to Kindergarten to teach Dual Language for two years and this is my second year back in first grade teaching the Dual language program along with my counterpart Sen. Vazquez. This is an amazing program and such a great opportunity for our students to learn a second language. I wish my children had the opportunity when they were at Irvin. I have three children, two boys and a girl. My oldest son just graduated High school and preparing for the next chapter of his life, and my other son is a senior this year and my daughter is a sophomore at Concord high school. Where did those years go.  I was born and raised in Ireland, and Gaeilge is 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 running. I love fostering dogs from the concord Humane society until they find their fur-ever homes. I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a BA in Elementary Education
