Ms. Cara O'Briant


I am Ms. O'Briant. I have been in education for ten years. Nine of these years have been working with students with special needs. I have been an ESE support teacher for 7 years. I work with students and their teachers to support their unique way of learning. I love my students and unlike many other types of teachers, I get to work with the same students for multiple years. This is my second year at Belleview Santos, so for many of my students, this is the second year I am working with them. When I am not working I am studying in my Master's Degree courses, playing with my kiddos, and crafting.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child's ESE needs I can assist you with those.
