Mrs. Sarah O'Connor
Hello Rucker Families! My name is Sarah O'Connor, and I have loved being the Librarian at Rucker for the past 2 years!
This year is my 19th year in education. I graduated from Simpson College (Iowa) with a BA in Elementary Education. My career began in Iowa teaching special education. I moved to the classroom and taught 1st grade for 4 years. During these years, I received my Masters in Education from Viterbo University (Wisconsin). After moving to Texas 12 years ago, I taught 2nd grade in Frisco ISD for 10 years.
Five years ago, I went back to school at the University of North Texas to receive my School Librarian Certification. I love helping all stakeholders find books they love, digital resources that support their learning, Makerspace activities that help them be an innovator, and more!
When I am at home, I love spending time with my husband, my 6 year old son, and my 3 year old daughter. We enjoy doing all things outdoors - taking our dog (Jayhawk) on walks, playing at the park, swimming, riding bikes, and playing all sports! We love to laugh and enjoy every moment we have together!
Rucker Elementary is an amazing place to be!
