My name is Kim O'Connell, and I am so excited to begin the adventure of teaching pre-K at the new Charter Oak International Academy! My teaching career began in West Hartford where I taught special education and kindergarten. During that time, I earned my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood/Special Education from the University of Saint Joseph. For 11 years, I taught pre-K and kindergarten at CREC (Capitol Region Education Council). I treasure the time spent with our youngest learners... I can't wait for the excitement, wonder and joy of our classroom!
Outside of school, I love spending time with my family and friends. My husband and I have two wonderful boys who attend Sedgwick Middle School. We enjoy traveling, hiking, riding bikes and reading great books!
