Mrs. Katherine O'Connor
Hello everyone! My name is Katherine O'Connor, and I am the Polish Bilingual Teacher here at Palos East. I have spent the past 5 years at Valley View School District in Romeoville/Bolingbrook as an ESL (English as a Second Language) Teacher, and prior to that, I taught Polish Bilingual for School District U-46 in Elgin. My BA and M.Ed. are both from Loyola University Chicago (Go Ramblers!). 

My interests include travel, books, concerts, cheering on Chicago sports teams (Go Cubs!) and spending time with my family. My husband and I have two sweet little boys that keep us busy!
My mornings consist of small group work with grades 1-5, and the afternoon is spent teaching Polish Bilingual Kindergarten for our full day program. I look forward to a wonderful school year helping our Polish Bilingual students reach their full potential in their English development!
