Meet Mrs. O'Brien


    Dear Student and Parent/Guardian,


    My name is Mrs. O’Brien, and I am your English Language Arts teacher. I am proud to say that I am a Hershey graduate, and this is my twelfth year teaching at Hershey Middle School.


    I graduated from Messiah College and taught fifth grade in the Northern York County School District in Dillsburg for three years before coming to Derry Township. In the summer of 2013, I completed my Master’s of Literacy Degree at Penn State Harrisburg. I am a certified Reading Specialist. 


    I live in Hershey with my husband and six-year-old son. I also have two adult step-daughters who grew up and moved out too soon. We have a West Highland Terrier named Sagan (after Carl Sagan). In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, truck camping, hiking, kayaking, doing yoga, reading, and learning more about teaching. My newest interests are foraging, gardening, and canning. 

    I am looking forward to a great year,

    Mrs. O’Brien
