Hi, I’m Michael O’Connor. I am originally from Massachusetts. I received BA from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst and my Masters of Education with an emphasis on Instructional Technology from Regis University here in Denver. I have taught in Denver Public Schools over the past 18 years. I originally started teaching 2nd grade, and then shifted my teaching skills to technology over the last 6 years.
This is my second year at Smith as the Technology/Art teacher. I am very excited to work with your children. I put a strong emphasis on Digital Citizenship and Literacy to make sure all students are successful 21st Century learners. I feel that all students need a strong foundation of knowledge about online safety and cyberbullying.
I enjoy spending time with family and traveling when I can. I love to bicycle throughout the year. I am also an avid handyman taking on home improvement projects during the summer.
