My name is Quinlin O’Donnell and I am the 2nd and 3rd grade sheltered ELL room teacher. This is my seventh year of teaching, but it is my first year teaching in America. I went to the University of Missouri in Columbia (MU), where I studied English Education. After I graduated in 2010, I went to South Korea, where I taught English for 6 years. I am so happy to be back in America and am very enthusiastic about teaching English language learners at KCIA. I love being involved in the community and really enjoy helping and serving others. I am passionately interested in politics and current events so I am constantly reading and listening to the news. I love spending time with my friends as well as my mom and dad and sometimes my sister, who lives in New York City. I am so excited for this year!
