Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. O'Leary and I have been teaching for the last seven years in Rochester, New York where I was born and raised. I moved to Florida with my husband so he could be closer to his famiy in Ocala. I am a proud graduate of Nazareth College of Rochester where I received both my bachelor and master degrees. I have taught ELA, 7th and 8th grade math, worked as a special education consultant teacher, and most recently had the opportunity to be an academic advisor and mentor teacher. Since my master's is in literacy, I was so excited to start as a reading teacher here at Liberty. I have one daughter and two amazing grandsons who are all in New York and I miss very much. I like to spend my freetime on or in the water and cuddling with my dogs Nico and Lily. I hope to show my students my own love of learning and reading and help them become more confident as readers and always encourage them to be the best versions of themselves possible.
