Ms. Marla O'Hara
Hi there! This is my 14th year teaching and there is nothing I’d rather do with my life! I am the proud mother of two boys. My oldest is a 3rd year med student at UCR. My younger son is preparing to start grad school to become a teacher.
We are in strange times and I am here to support you while simultaneously making this year manageable for you parents! I believe in allowing your child to find his/her confidence and voice during this 3rd grade year. It may be over Zoom or on a part time basis, but it is my end goal. The virtual/hybrid teaching models are new but also exciting for our kids. Nothing beats having a teacher in front of you. However, our society and career opportunities are going to be changing to include much more complicated levels of technology. We can use this opportunity to perfect our online skills while keeping our pajamas on! Please take a deep breath and know that we will muddle through these changes together and come out ahead! I look forward to an exciting year!
