Mrs. Laura O’Brien

This is my third year teaching preschool at St. Joseph School. I was an aide in the preschool classroom for the previous two years, and a stay-at-home mom before that. I am looking forward to guiding our youngest students as they start their own educational journey.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Arizona, and worked in the corporate world before going back to school to earn my Masters of Education in Early Childhood Education from DePaul University in 2009.

My husband and I moved to Downers Grove shortly after our oldest child was born. Both of my children have attended St. Joseph since they were in preschool. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, traveling, and hanging out with my family and friends.
