A Little About Mrs. O'Quinn
Howdy!  I am a proud graduate of Texas A&M University and a second grade teacher at Rock Prairie Elementary, where I have been teaching for the past eighteen years.  I currently teach math and science.  
I am thrilled to have Keri Bedard as my teaching partner. She teaches reading/language arts and social studies. Keri and I have been working together for the past six years and have formed a dynamic teaching partnership.   

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with Rick, my husband of 35 years; as well as my two sons and their wives. Sean and Patrick are both graduates of Texas A&M University. Patrick is also an MBA graduate from OU and is married to Lauren Nevitt, an OU graduate.  Sean recently married Ashley Wilkins, a graduate of TCU and the UT Health School of Nursing. I am super proud of my family! 

I also love to travel!  To date, my favorite trip was to Switzerland and Annecy, France!  I've been fortunate to have traveled to Amsterdam, Germany, Italy, and Peru as well.  Other than that I have been to tropical areas in Mexico, the East Coast, the West Coast and  several states in-between! My ideal vacation is centered around the mountains in the summer and an ocean in a tropical location in the winter.

I enjoy teaching and am thankful to be a part of a profession that has such an impact on society.  My philosophy as a teacher is that all students can learn when accepted for who they are and where they are at in their educational journey.  I strive for my students to be excited about coming to school each day.  A great day in my classroom is one where there is learning taking place, laughter being heard, and friendships being formed.
Thanks for sharing your children with me.
