Meet The Teacher
Thank you for visiting the second grade page. My name is Mary O'Donnell and this is my eighth year teaching at Long Beach Catholic Regional School. I started as a first grade teacher and now will be a second grade teacher.
I am a certified early childhood teacher and I am also certified to work with students with disabilities. I earned my undergraduate degree from Stonehill College in Massachusetts and I completed my graduate work at Adelphi University right here on Long Island. I have also taken classes at Molloy College to further my education and continue to become the best teacher I can be! 
Fun Fact #1: My career as a learner began right here at L.B.C.R.S. with our very own Ms. Priestley when she was our Kindergarten teacher. L.B.C.R.S. is not only a great place to go to school it is a great place to work and I love every minute that I am here. 
Fun Fact #2 Mrs. O'Donnell will be starting the year with many of her students from last year, only this time, they will be second graders! However, Mrs. O'Donnell will be leaving second grade sometime in September to give birth and take care of her first child- a baby boy! She will be back sometime in the winter when her baby is older and she is ready to return to the classroom!
Fun Fact #3 I love working and living in the community. I enjoy seeing my students around town and being able to wave to them. This year you will probably see me strolling a carriage on the boardwalk or walking Buster around town with Mr. O'Donnell (Dave)
