Greetings!!!  My name is Libby O'Connell and I am the math specialist at Sanford Middle School.  I am working with the school and the math teachers to help improve the math program here at Sanford.  During the 2015/2016 school year, I will be teaching Math 7 and Focus Math.  I am also the team lead for Fireworks.  

I am married and have a dog, Murphy.  I have 2 children, Colin is now 5 and Molly is 1.5 years old.  I love to travel, knit, play games, swim and hang out with friends.  I graduated from Minneapolis Public Schools, after attending both Barton Open and South High.  I received my Bachelor

Molly

This is my 13th year teaching in the Minneapolis Public Schools.  Before coming to Sanford, I taught at Armatage (1 year), Anwatin (2 years), Sheridan (1 year) and Windom (3 years).  I have taught 4-8th grade in these various schools.
