Teacher Name:Kristina O'KeefeSchool Email Address: email@example.comSubjects I Teach: Government and Economics, Psychology and Sociology___________________________________________________________Welcome MessageHello Students and Parents. I am excited for the opportunity to connect with students and our Hampton community via virtual learning.Biography:I started teaching in in 2005 after graduating from Fayetteville State University in North Carolina with a BA in Teaching Secondary Social Studies. I spent 10 years teaching in a high school in North Carolina and moved to help open Hampton High School the inaugural year. Currently I serve as a classroom teacher, NHS chair and girl's flag football assistant coach. In 2014 I earned a MS in Political Science. I enjoy teaching because I love the content and truly enjoy helping young people develop into the best versions of themselves. Teaching is more than a profession; it is a self-identity. When I am not working with students I enjoy; reading, exercising, traveling and most of all spending time with my family. My daughter, Arabella, is the center of my world and I am sure you will all see her pop up in Google Meets. I am excited for the newest educational challenge of virtual learning. I pride myself in developing positive and sustainable relationships with students and coworkers.
