Mrs. Mary Jo Sullivan
Hello! My name is Mary Jo Sullivan. I am so very excited to be teaching second grade at Spradley this year. Here is a little background on me. I was born and raised in Minnesota. I attended St. Catherine’s University in St. Paul,MN. I graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I am certified to teach EC-4, ELAR 4-8, and ESL. This will be my 30th year of teaching...YES, 30 years, and have loved every year! During my teaching career I have taught grades 2, 3, and 4, with second grade being my favorite!!. I taught for 15 years in Minnesota before moving to Frisco 17 years ago. This will be my 15th year as a Texas educator. I am so very lucky to have a career that I have loved for 30 years. The best parts of my job is connecting with my students, forming a strong bond with them personally and educationally and partnering with their parents to make their child’s school experience the most fruitful!!
I have 3 children, Megan, Michael, and Morgan. They are all attending different universities in different states this year. I am keeping my fingers crossed that 2 of them will be graduating in May!! My family also has a little 7 pound dog named Ellie who thinks she is quite a little princess! In my spare time I love spending time with my family and friends doing just about anything from going out to dinner to hiking to watching movies and sports. One of my favorite things to do is watch my son play basketball for his university. I hope to be able to see more of his games this season since this is his senior year! I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to join the Spradley family! This is an amazing school that consists of amazing people!!! The best part of my job is connecting with my students and partnering with their parents in their child’s education!
