Justine O'Neill

 

My name is Justine O'Neill and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach your child in grade 2 this year at Coopers Crossing School. I am amazed by the natural curiosity of children and how they are always seeking out new and amazing things in their world. I try to foster that curiosity in my classroom by engaging students in an authentic learning environment that will help guide them with their inquiries about our world.

Helping students develop the skills necessary to solve problems and find information is becoming very important in our technologically saturated world. Which is why this year in grade 2 we will be learning dynamically through real world problems, hands on learning, and asking critical questions about the world around us. Technology will be a major part of our classroom. Your child will be a confident digital citizen by the end of the year.

I understand the importance of maintaining communication between the home and the school. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s learning, or if you wish to volunteer in the classroom.
