Ms. O'Connor

My family
  • Hello. I'm Ms. O'Connor and I'm excited to be returning to Global Arts Plus!

    I started my career here in 2008 and I left in 2018 to explore other St. Paul Public Schools. Nothing compares to Global Arts Plus and I am so excited to be back to share my passion for Health and Physical Education. Outside of work I am a proud mom raising three amazing children (2nd grade, 5th grade, and 7th grade) who keep themselves busy playing football, soccer, basketball, baseball/softball, skiing and dancing. You will often find me at the gym, ski hill, or baseball field. I stay active by running, daily walks with my dog Chili, skiing, and strength training.

     

    Please reach out with any questions michelle.oconnor@spps.org.

     

    My goal is to promote health and physical activity in fun and safe way, meeting every child where they are. In health we will dive deeper into mental health, physical health (nutrition, fitness, chemical health), and social health (community violence, peer pressure, target marketing). In the gym we will explore a variety of team and individual sports - football, volleyball, badminton, tennis, team handball, basketball, whiffle ball, soccer all while increasing cardiovascular fitness.
