6th Grade - O'Gara

Welcome to sixth grade! It is going to be an exciting and challenging adventure for the students. This year your child will be finishing his/her elementary experience with many unique educational opportunities such as project-based learning and sixth grade camp. Students will also be preparing themselves for junior high with subject rotations of science, social studies, and PE/art. The focus will be on nurturing the independence necessary for success in the future through critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.

Let me start by telling you a little about myself. I am a mother of 3, and I have been teaching since 2002. I did my undergraduate work at UCLA (Go Bruins!) and have a Master Degree in Collaborative Educational Leadership. I am passionate about my job; it is the greatest job in the world.

I look forward to working with you and your child this year. My ultimate goal is that I foster in each student a life-long love of learning. I am 100% committed to the success of each one of my students. If any issues arise for your child, or if you have any questions for me during the year, please feel free to contact me. The best way for us to communicate is through email at

I appreciate your involvement and support.
