Meet the Teacher

  • Dear Families,

         My name is Candace O'Keefe and I will be your child's teacher this year.  I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself.

         I am originally from the south.  I moved to New York twelve years ago.  My husband's name is Donald and we have a daughter, Grace.  We have a dog named Chase.  Chase is part hound and loves to play.

         I am a football fan.  My two favorite teams are Notre Dame and Green Bay.  I also love to read, cook, garden, and spend time with my family.

         This year will be my 22nd year teaching.  I have experience teaching both special education and general education.  I have taught kindergarten through third grade.   

         I am looking forward to a great year working with you and your child. 


    Enjoy the rest of the summer,
    Mrs. O'Keefe
