Welcome to Mrs. O'Dell's English Class!
My mission is to
Create life-long learners through an inclusive & safe
environment while promoting respect and kindness,
leaving a lasting impression beyond the classroom.
Hi everyone! I can't wait to meet all of my students and start the 2023-24 school year. I've been teaching for twenty years, fifteen have been in Pittsford. What I'm most excited about are the insightful discussions and laughter that I welcome and encourage in the classroom. They have always been a source of positivity and enthusiasm in my teaching. I also love to exercise, bake healthy treats (vegan and gluten free), read, take my dog, Sadie, for walks, and spend time with my family and friends.
The pictures above are of my family. My husband, Jerry, is a retired Social Studies teacher. He taught for thirty-four years at Victor Senior High and continues to coach Track and Field. My older daughter, Lauren, is finishing her graduate degree at the University of Rochester's Warner School of Education in pursuit of her dream of becoming an English Teacher. My younger daughter, Jenna, is a junior student athlete on the crew team at Lehigh University. Her major is communications and Journalism with a minor in Fashion Apparel. She is usually responsible for my daily outfit check in the morning. And the family queen is my sweet Golden Retriever, Sadie.
