Who We Are
Ellen O’BrienLearning Specialist Email
Ellen O’Brien has worked in Learning Services and as a classroom teacher at Fraser Academy since 2010.
Ms. O’Brien entered the Orton-Gillingham world as a parent delighted with her child’s progress with this approach to reading and writing, and later as an educator wanting to learn the tools that made such a difference. She has a Bachelor’s of Science in Middle School Education with Socials and Spanish as the subject areas and a Master’s of Divinity with Biblical Languages. This summer Ms. O’Brien became a Fellow-in-Training with the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Educators and Practitioners (AOGPE).
She delights in seeing students understand themselves as learners, overcome learning challenges and thrive in curiosity, skill development, and knowledge expression.
